The ACT Government is investigating whether
the privately owned Phillip Swimming and Ice
Skating Centre is fulfilling its lease conditions.
Territory and Municipal Services Minister
Shane Rattenbury addressed a question on the
topic at the Woden Valley Community Council
According to the territory plan, the lease states
a number of objectives including to ensure a
high quality urban environment through use of
sustainable design and materials and maintain a
high level of amenity for employees and public''.
Facility manager John Raut agreed the pool
was past its use-by date, but said unless an
investor came on board it would not be viable to
upgrade the facility.
"Habits have changed,'' he said.
It's a great pool for lap swimmers and family
facilities are available but it's not the social hub
it used to be.''
He said during his 36 years as manager
patronage at the pool has decreased dramatically.
Mr Rattenbury suggested the government had
been discussing what it could do to assist the
facility and appease Woden residents who were
annoyed they didn't have a higher quality pool.
Mr Rattenbury said a new pool is slated to be
built in nearby Molonglo.

Just in case the bands taking the
stage didn't feel like royalty, Mr
Thompson and his team from Infinite
Sound and Light were installing a roof
of chandeliers above the acts.
The 24-year-old said he had a vision
to make the 26th annual festival the
boldest event yet and provide
attractions for all ages and tastes, when
he took on the presidency role.
The festival kicks off at 6.30pm on
Friday with DJ Felix keeping the beat
at the all ages dance party and light

INXS frontman Ciaran Gribbin will
headline on Saturday night along with
noted bands such as Drawing North,
Hands Like Houses and
Along with the range of music, there
is food and plenty of family-friendly
activities, unique market stalls and a
classic car display.
"On Saturday the kids will be well
catered for with a kids' corner, a
display by the Rural Fire Service,
entertainers for the little ones and
carnival rides," Mr Thompson said.
"On Sunday there's more
entertainment for the kids including a
display by the scouts, community
performances, hot air balloons -- if the
weather gods are kind -- and of course
more food and stalls for the big kids."
