Temporary closure of Eric Arnold Heated Pool

4 September 2018

As part of the Gunnedah Memorial Pool Complex Upgrade, the Eric Arnold Heated Pool will be closed from Monday, September 10 to Friday, October 5, 2018, while works are undertaken for the refurbishment and maintenance at the indoor facility.

Gunnedah Shire Council’s Acting Director Infrastructure Services Daniel Noble said the closure dates will assist the contractor, Hines Constructions Pty Ltd, and Council staff to carry out the necessary works.

“During the closure period a new filtration and sanitation system to the 25 metres pool will be installed and refurbishment of the amenities and entry areas will be undertaken by Hines Constructions Pty Ltd,” Mr Noble said.

“While the facility is closed, Council staff will also undertake maintenance works on the 25 metres pool, including repainting the pool shell.”

Preparations will begin on Friday, September 7 to permit the start of the refurbishment works the following week.

Mr Noble advised the pool will remain open during this preparatory work with small disruptions to some areas of the concourse.

“Council appreciates that the closure may cause some inconvenience, however the scheduled works will markedly improve the amenity and quality of the heated pool facility,” he said.

The heated pool will re-open at 5.30am on Saturday, October 6 2018.
