It has been a long time in the making but Friday 9 August Monbulk Pool will officially open its doors to the public.
|Centre Manager, Helen Hostettler and Cr Samantha Dunn, we're|
enjoying some of the new features at the Monbulk Pool, and
even though they're designed for kids, we had a lot of fun!
I've had the opportunity to have a number of sneak peeks along the way and it is great to see architect drawings translated to the real thing.
I have no doubt residents will be delighted with the results and I thank locals for their patience as the pool has been closed for over 18months.
The project has come with it's challenges but all those are behind us and we now have a extensively refurbished 25mt pool including wet deck and a new program pool to run a range of different activities including learn to swim programs, there's also some wonderful new additions to the centre which the kids will love.
The pool also has a very comfortable café area which takes advantage of it's magnificent outlook to the Sassafras Creek corridor and surrounding vegetation.
I'm willing to boast the gym has the very best outlook of any gym in the country, but I could be a little biased! Gym membership is currently at the 900 mark which is a phenomenal response.
My congrats to all involved, it's been a great community project with a lot of time dedicated to seeing the concept through to reality. There will be an 'official opening', I'll be sure to keep you posted with details.
