Residents are invited to the swimming pool in Main Street, Lowood on 10 December for the season launch event which will include free entry throughout the day and free children’s entertainment between 10am to 12pm.
Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said this event would celebrate the completion of stage one of upgrades to the community facility.
“The first stage of upgrades included replacing the existing pool with a new reinforced concrete tiled pool inclusive of ramp and stair access, a new water treatment system, new heating equipment and excitingly the replacement of the toddler pool with a zero-depth water play area,” Cr Lehmann said.
“The upgraded facility will service Lowood and the surrounding community for years and we are proud to be delivering a sustainable facility for our community.”
Cr Lehmann said Council will be start stage two of the upgrades in the 2023 offseason.
“These upgrades will include carpark upgrades, installation of solar panels, lighting upgrades, amenity upgrades and landscape works,” he said.
Council anticipates that the pool will reopen to the public on Saturday, 26 November.
The Lowood Swimming Pool will be managed by Just Sports n Fitness on behalf of Council.
