Upgrades a step closer
THE Town of Cambridge awarded Doric Group the Bold Park Aquatic Centre redevelopment contract for $10.8 million at last month’s council meeting. Doric has been contracted to build the new centre, which will include a 50m outdoor heated swimming pool with 10 lanes, a covered 20m leisure pool, creche or function room, cafe, change rooms, an expansion of the existing car park, public barbecues, a children's playground and upgraded landscaping. The centre closed on September 7 and works are set to begin soon. The revamp is estimated to take about 12 months to complete, with the centre scheduled to reopen in early October, 2015. The total cost of the project is $12.25 million, which includes professional fees, other minor works and contingencies.
