Scar­bor­ough Beach Pool Update

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

The City’s Scar­bor­ough Beach Pool project is fast be­com­ing a re­al­ity. Un­der con­struc­tion just south of the iconic beach am­phithe­atre, the $26 mil­lion fa­cil­ity will fea­ture a 50m out­door heated pool with eight lanes, four ad­join­ing 25m lanes and a sep­a­rate learn to swim pool. Sup­port­ing ameni­ties in­clude change rooms, recre­ational ar­eas, restau­rant and a café.

Re­cent mile­stones for the fa­cil­ity in­clude the City se­cur­ing geo­ther­mal en­ergy, which will pro­vide nat­u­ral heat to main­tain pool tem­per­a­ture. Dur­ing the works, con­trac­tors drilled to depths of 430m and 960m and tests have in­di­cated that the process will pro­vide the re­quired wa­ter tem­per­a­ture.

The pool it­self has been ex­ca­vated, formed, poured, wa­ter­proofed and leak tested. The grand­stand seat­ing for 200 spec­ta­tors has been com­pleted and the in­ter­nal fitout is well un­der­way. It is ex­pected that the pool will be com­pleted by late 2017, with the fa­cil­ity set to of­fi­cially open in early 2018.
