5 reasons to have your next party at the local pool

Whether you’re five or 15, nothing says ‘party’ quite like a pool party!

The team at City Aquatics, the home of Rackley Swimming, shares five reasons why a pool party is the best way to celebrate your child’s next birthday.

It’s inexpensive and flexible

Why do parents feel pressured to throw extravagant parties for their kids these days? A pool party at the local swimming pool is an affordable and fun way to celebrate a birthday. There is everything you need — entertainment, food and fun activities — without a hefty price tag!

Each venue is unique and offers a different set of birthday party packages, catering, and activity options — from simple Marco Polo and BYO food, to a fully catered affair with an inflatable obstacle course where all you have to bring is your swimmers.

Easy to organise with no clean up required

Say the words ‘kids birthday party’ and many parents break into a sweat. It’s stressful to organise and no one enjoys the clean up!

Holding your birthday party at a City Aquatics pool instantly takes both of those worries away.

City Aquatic and Rackley Swimming pools are also great for sporting club get-togethers and community group catch-ups!

It gets them active with their friends

Screen time and keeping kids active is top of mind for parents today. A pool party gets the kids off the screens and in the water having fun with their friends.

It’s great for their swimming ability and water confidence

Learning to swim and being confident in the water is critical for all Queensland kids. A pool party is a great way to get kids in the water, building on those skills — and they don’t even realise they are doing it!

It is FUN!

Yes, a pool party is super fun! From pool games and inflatables to playing in the water with friends, it’s an active, fun party that all kids will enjoy.
