It's been wonderful to see this well loved pool back in full swing with the reopening in August 2013. Come and join the celebration, it will great to see you there.
Here's a few pics of the journey.

It was great to be part of a project led by women, not often
seen on major construction projects.

Part of the project included deconstruction of the existing
 25m pool shell which was replaced by the new wet deck.
This is how the 25mt pool looked in July 2012.

A happy day for us, filling the new pool back in June
2013, here I am pictured with pool manager at the time,
Helen Hostettler. Helen was instrumental to the project
providing advice and gathering community input.

The new program pool, this pool frees up lanes in
the 25mt pool and provides more water space for a
range of activities including learn to swim programs.
