The Casino Memorial Swimming Pool is a key community facility which was built in the 1950s and now needs major upgrades to provide a modern and safe aquatic experience for the users.
Council has engaged industry experts to identify the safe operational requirements of the pool. Council has also turned to the community for their ideas and feedback on what they want the site to provide.
Following the compilation of this information, Council has produced a draft master plan to be adopted by Council.
Key elements of the master plan are:
• The replacement of the filtration systems
• Reconstruction of the junior pool
• Major works on the 50 m pool to assist in the pool filtration and swimming
• A splash pad / forecourt facility
• An indoor 25m heated pool
• Possible new water slide facilities
Council has secured a $3.2 million grant from the Federal Government to undertake works, with the filtration system, small pool and the splash pad area being the first priorities.
Council will continue to work towards securing funding to complete further works with the total estimated cost currently $9.05 million.
