Pool information

General pool information

The Margaret River Recreation Centre is an accredited Watch Around Water centre. 

Key messages for parents and carers:

  • Under 5 years – always keep them within arm’s reach
  • If your child is under five years of age, supervision must be within arm’s reach – meaning you need to be in the water with your child.
  • Under 10 years – always keep them in sight
  • Constant active supervision is required for children. Parents and carers must be prepared to enter the water and maintain constant visual contact.
  • Be aware of distractions
  • Take steps to minimise distractions – such as mobile phones or chatting to other parents – to avoid lapses in supervision.
  • Be prepared
  • Ensure you have everything you need before getting into the water, such as towels and dry clothes.
