The Yarram Pool has re-opened to users following a month-long closure for major works to install the new roof structure as part of the Warmer Pool for Yarram Project.
While the summer swim season ended at other outdoor pools across Wellington Shire at the weekend, Yarram will remain open until Easter Monday, 18 April.
The pool will be guaranteed of opening for recreational swimming during this period each Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4pm to 7.30pm, and Saturdays from 1pm to 6pm, irrespective of the temperature trigger.
Lap swimming will be available from 6am to 8am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and all summer season membership passes for Yarram will be extended for the duration.
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye encouraged the Yarram community to visit the improved pool.
“We look forward to welcoming the community back to the pool and school groups back to their usual programs,” Cr Bye said.
“The community has been very patient during this construction period and will be itching to get along and test out the warmer water conditions.
“To acknowledge the community’s patience during the closure, the summer swim season has been extended at Yarram and we really hope they enjoy the improvements.”
While construction of the canopy over the pool is complete, the pool will still undergo minor works this week including the finalisation of the café-style side blinds. These works will not require any further closures of the pool.
All summer season passes will be extended for Yarram Pool during the period.
