It’s time to make a splash at Towradgi Rock Pool with the popular swimming space reopening for the community to enjoy.
The pool was closed to the public in May while extensive upgrade works got underway. The project included, replacing the main concourse slabs, replacing the lower concourse slabs and walls, repairs to the toddlers pool, new handrails, the addition of a new stairway to deck level, widening the entry stairs to increase accessibility, and a fresh coat of paint.
In addition to the works to the pool, a new valve and piping was also installed to assist with the ongoing cleaning schedule, and future maintenance requirements for the pool.
Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said that the project was part of Council’s ongoing commitment to maintain and renew the City’s highly valued ocean pools which is detailed within the Infrastructure Delivery Program.
“Our rockpools are subject to some of the toughest environmental conditions, so keeping them in shape is a challenging task,” he said.
“We have risen to the challenge and this well-loved area is once again ready to serve the community and will be a welcomed asset over the coming warmer months and years to come.
“Towradgi rock pool has been part of the community since the 1960s and is a favourite spot for locals and tourists alike. We have these wonderful outdoor spaces and it’s extremely important we put the work in to maintain them so they can be enjoyed by everyone, now and into the future.”
