The Casuarina swimming pool has just received new equipment that provides accessible facilities for the whole community.
Some of the new additions include a pool sling hoist and an adult change table with a ceiling hoist, which provide great benefits to residents of property in Darwin.
International Day of People with Disability is on December 3, so the official launch of the new equipment will tie in with this red calendar day.
There will be an inflatable pool toy, a free barbecue as well as fun and games on the day to celebrate. Pool entry will also be free for the event, so residents of real estate in Darwin can enjoy a cooling dip in the pool free of charge.
New facilities illustrate how the city of Darwin caters to all types of people and helps to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Swimming is an excellent low-impact form of exercise suitable for everyone. It is particularly good for people with joint problems, as there is no ground impact. But everyone can benefit from a dip in the pool.
The city's smoothie bike will also be on display to whip up a healthy snack for people to enjoy by the pool.
