Australia Day activities will then move to the Warren Memorial Swimming Pool where there will be an inflatable obstacle course which the public will be able to use for a gold coin donation. Funds raised will go towards the Skate Park project.
 
Warren's 2020 Australia Day Ambassador is Mr James Pittar. James Pittar is an International Open Water Swimmer and has represented Australia in swimming and rowing as a disabled athlete. James suffers from a genetic disorder called Retinitis Pigmentosa which causes a degeneration of the retina. This disease was diagnosed when James was 16 years old after he suffered from rapidly decreasing vision. He was legally blind at 21 years of age and completely blind by his early 30’s. As a direct result of his declining vision, James focused his sporting efforts on the fields of swimming and rowing.
