Casino Memorial Swimming Pool opening

The day we have all been waiting for has arrived – the official opening ceremony of the modernised Casino Memorial Swimming Pool.

Gates open at 9am, Saturday 23 September, with the official opening ceremony scheduled to take place at 10am. The free family fun day will include activities, food and the unveiling of a dedicated plaque.

This $6.7 million project would not be possible without the combined support of the Australian Government and Richmond Valley Council. The Australian Government contributed $3.74 million from its Female Facilities and Water Safety Stream Program, with Richmond Valley Council proving the remaining $2.96 million.

We have dedicated extensive effort and resources to create a state-of-the-art facility which will serve our community for decades to come.

The pool upgrade has been a signature project of Richmond Valley Council’s these past four years, and its completion is a major milestone for the Richmond Valley community.

Stage one work was carried out by Momentum Built Pty Ltd and includes:

  • Construction of a new concrete and tiled, eight-lane 50m heated pool with an all-ability access ramp and stairs.
  • Refurbishment of the plant room and the construction of new filtration infrastructure for the 50m pool.
  • Construction of a new concrete and tiled, multi-purpose toddlers’ splash pool.
  • Construction of a new plant room and filtration infrastructure for the splash pool.
  • Shade structures at each end of the 50m pool and over the toddlers’ pool.
  • Refurbishment of the existing water slide.
  • A new electrical switch room and the installation of an electrical substation suitable for the full redevelopment of the swimming centre.
  • New flood lighting.
  • Refurbishment of the shower facilities and change rooms complying with Workplace Health and Safety and mobility access standards, including non-slip flooring, new showers, and plumbing fixtures.

We very much hope you will be able to join us.
