Townsville City Council is replacing the 50m pool at Northern Beaches Leisure Centre.
The pool was constructed in 2008 and is nearing the end of its useful life. This renewal project will ensure that the community can continue to enjoy this recreation asset in the Northern Beaches area.
Council plans to replace:
- the existing 50m pool
- the surrounding concourse
- fitments including dive blocks, handrails and ladders.
While construction is underway, Council will also undertake maintenance of the surrounding pool facilities including:
- installing a new backwash tank
- replacing the existing chlorine tank
- resealing the floor surface
- replacing shade sails
- installing new pool covers.
Northern Beaches Leisure Centre will be closed to the public while this project is completed.
The centre’s last day of operation is Thursday 14 April 2022, with construction commencing mid May 2022. This project is expected to be completed by mid-to-late November 2022, weather and conditions permitting.
