Beatty Park Pool to be Revamped

Published on Tuesday, 19 January 2021 at 2:00:45 PM

The indoor pool area at Beatty Park is getting a major makeover, with fresh tiling, Aboriginal artwork and exciting new water features set to be installed over the coming months.

The renovations begin on 27 January and include the installation of a giant tipping bucket, a series of water spray arches and other fun water fountains for kids to play under and around.

The indoor pool will be fully retiled and will feature a fresh new colour scheme and laser engraved artwork by a local Aboriginal artist.

Accessible change rooms will be built, more on-deck showers and changing cubicles will be provided and a new indoor pool water treatment system will be installed.

“These upgrades will improve safety, water quality and energy efficiency, and while we’re at it we’re going to freshen things up and make the pool more fun and accessible,” said Mayor Emma Cole.

“Doing these works during the warmer months will allow us to keep our Swim School running in the geothermally heated outdoor pools.

“This is an exciting project for Beatty Park and it will help ensure this much-loved community hub is fun, safe and in great condition for years to come.

“We understand the upgrades will cause some disruptions to our regular swimmers, but if you can bear with us we’re confident you will be happy with the end result.”

The indoor pool will need to be closed for about five months while the renovations take place.

The Swim School will move to the outdoor pools during this time, and space in these pools will be limited during peak periods.

The rest of the facility will continue to operate as normal.

Work on the changerooms will continue when the pool re-opens, but this will not impact swimmers.
