Quick Overview of Orion Lagoon:
Orion Lagoon is a new world class swimming lagoon in Springfield made up of 3.5kms of swimming pools at depths varying from 0-1.5M. Combined with the fun from the nearby Robelle Domain Parklands makes it the perfect day out for the family.
What Is It?
Located right next to Robelle Domain (A huge parklands area, check out our post here!) in Springfield, Orion Lagoon is one of the largest man made public swimming pools in the southern hemisphere.
The world class swimming lagoon features a 50m swimming area that varies in depth up to 1.5m, making it great for swimming laps. Younger children will enjoy the elongated end of the lagoon that has an average depth of 30cm and features fun play areas such as water squirter’s and rubber covered stepping stones.
The lagoon is surrounded by plenty of undercover areas, umbrellas, tables and benches. You’ll also find large grassy areas that are perfect for setting up a picnic blanket.
There are lockers, toilets and change tables for your convenience, as well as a cafe that sells food and drinks between 7:00AM – 6:00PM daily.
Make sure you check out the Robelle Domain Parklands that are right next door and include an awesome zero-depth water play area for children featuring huge tipping buckets, jet sprays and much more.
