$1m earmarked for aquatic centre upgrade

The Sans Souci swimming pool in Sydney’s south is the latest aquatic centre to receive substantial funding for an upgrade. A $1 million refurbishment will bring the 50 m pool back to International Federation standards, according to the Georges River Council website.

Works are due to kick off shortly and will incorporate structural concrete repair, joint repair, re-waterproofing and new tiling. The toddler pool will also get some much-needed attention. Broken heaters and cracked tiles were among the identified issues raised by the Sans Souci Sea Devils Swim Club, saying that deteriorated standards overall needed to be rectified to entice the local community back.

The project is expected to reach completion in September this year, with the centre’s 25 m indoor pool remaining open throughout.

Funding is via the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities fund.
