Gunnedah Memorial Pool Open Day

1 August 2018

Gunnedah residents will have the opportunity to see construction work on the upgrade of the Gunnedah Memorial Pool Complex up close this Saturday morning, 4 August.

An open day will be held between 9.00am and 12.00pm at the pool complex, with visitors able to view the progress of works from the northern embankment of the facility.

Gunnedah Shire Council Mayor Jamie Chaffey said there is a lot to see at the site.

“The 50 metre pool structure has been completed, tiling is about to begin and the Main Pavilion walls and structural steel are well advanced,” Cr Chaffey said.

“Saturday’s open day will allow the community to gauge the scale of the project, particularly the new eight lane 50 metre pool and the Plant Room that will house the complex’s filtration equipment.

“This is the largest community facility renewal project Council has ever undertaken so I encourage the community to come and see the progress of works,’ Cr Chaffey concluded.

Pedestrian access to the complex will be through the northern gate off South Street opposite the Band Hall. Car parking will be available in the main carpark off Anzac Parade as South Street between the carpark and Henry Street will be closed to traffic.

A sausage sizzle conducted by the Gunnedah Swimming Club will be available to visitors.

The Gunnedah Memorial Pool Complex Upgrade is part of the Councils record proposal of infrastructure program that are being undertaking over four years to improve the services and liveability of Gunnedah Shire.
