Work has begun to continue upgrading Wauchope outdoor pool.
The council says it’s a key project in its Recreation Action Plan.
The work includes construction of a new children’s water play area adjacent to the existing toddler pool, a tiered covered concrete grandstand on the north side of the pool and new shade shelters. The 1m and 3m diving boards will also be re-installed.
“The great news is the community will be able to access the pool whilst the upgrade continues,” said council director Matt Rogers. “This means the pool will open as normal for the September school holidays and remain open throughout the summer swimming season.”
The upgrades add to the previous completed works that included structural repairsto both the 50 meter pool and toddler pool, installation of a wet deck system, renewal of the concrete pool surrounds and paths, and a new pool heating and filtration system.
A key enhancement to the pool also included the construction of a new access friendly entry ramp.
