Summer is upon us and the 2018/2019 West Coast swimming pool season commences on Saturday 1st December 2018.
Extensive works have occurred over the winter to fix major issues at the Queenstown Swimming Pool. The pipes underneath have all been upgraded and we expect users will be able to fully enjoy the facility.
The Zeehan Pool was closed for the 2017/2018 season to allow for maintenance works and infrastructure improvements including the adoption of a temperature-based opening hours policy. These works are now complete, and the pool will be open during the 2018/2019 season.
The Rosebery Pool will also be open for the 2018/2019 season however there has been a slight reduction in operating hours, due to patronage figures recorded last year.
‘The Queenstown, Zeehan and Rosebery pool facilities have all received significant maintenance and upgrades for the coming season’, Mayor Vickers said.
As per previous seasons, the cold weather policy will be implemented. Should the forecast be a maximum less than 16°C for Queenstown and Zeehan and a maximum less than 18°C for Rosebery the pools will not be open for public recreational swimming. The trigger for changes to opening hours are based on the Bureau of Meteorology afternoon (approx. 4.30pm) weather forecast for Queenstown, Rosebery and Zeehan.
