Works to upgrade the Maryborough Outdoor Pool facility are about to commence.
The $216,000 project, funded as part of Council’s 2019/2020 Budget will Include installation of two shade sails and artificial turf, and an upgrade to the plant room.
The project will commence this week (21/5) with the project expected to be complete by mid-July ready for the start of the 2020/2021 pool season.
Details about the project are:
- Shade sails will be installed over the toddlers’ octagonal pool and two grassed areas adjacent to the main pool.
- The plant room will be upgraded to ensure it meets all current safety and operating standards and will also see the water treatment system improved.
- The artificial turf will be installed under the existing roof structure next to the toddlers pool
Central Goldfields Shire Council Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said the improvements works were much needed.
“Our community has long been telling us they’ve wanted to shade at the Maryborough Outdoor Pool and we’re thrilled we can deliver shade to not one but two areas of the Outdoor Pool precinct.
“The improvements to the toilet facilities along with the installation of artificial turf will certainly go a long way towards making this Heritage Listed facility a wonderful place for our local community to cool off during the summer months.”
The project will be delivered by Bendigo Aquatic Services.
