    Just recently had a Body Composition Analysis with Krystal. Krystal is a terrific example of the caring staff PARC has on offer. I'm very pleased with the cost and the fabulous facilities available. G...  more »

    The pools always have issues, closed for one reason or another without notification to people paying to use those areas. Just take your money and sorry it's closed. The cafe is always a mess. I don't ...  more »
  • Pools are constantly being shut down, slides too. Staff don't notify you of it when you pay at the front desk so it's a bit of too bad so sad once you go in. Carpark is always full and the cost for it is over the top too. I honestly would travel to somewhere else for a better run aquatic facility. It looks like this one is neglected. Frankston Council aren't well known for taking care of their aquatic facilities. They let Jubilee Park pool go too and now it's been bulldozed. I wonder how long it will be before this one is too.
  • This place is probably the best acqua centre one can get and compared to others available in/around Melbourne. It is nicely kept = very clean. Staff is friendly. Parking is no drama if one is a bit patient and if coming at peak times: otherwise, no problem and one gets the $ paid for the 2 hour parking back. The only reason why I don't give 5 stars is because the annual membership is a bit steep and one has to also paid for joining the club UNLESS one can affor to pay a lump sum upfront (not that easy these days) - It is good to have separate facilities for kids . Sufficient changing rooms : separaate ones for groups. Got to say that LOVE THIS PLACE. Some negative comments are actually invalid but, again...who can please everybody? Keep the good work : it is appreciate by many families like ours.
  • Love the facilities and the easy system. Great variety of classes. Still needs some advanced group class options though.
  • Great place to relax especially in winter as it's lovely and warm inside, great pools and slides. Sometimes there's no hot water in the showers and it can get super noisy on hot busy days. Even then still worth it as membership also gives access to the outdoor pool in Frankston North (with another waterslide).
  • Great place to bring the kids and affordable
