Better Infrastructure

Gunnedah Memorial Pool Complex Upgrade

Gunnedah Shire Council accepted a tender of $11.4 million from Hines Constructions of Bathurst to complete Stage 1a of the Master Plan at the Council Ordinary Meeting on 16 August 2017. Construction will start on the project on 16 October 2017.

Stage 1a will see a new 50 metre outdoor pool, a kids wet play area, and new pavilion established. As part of the works, a new water filtration system will be installed to ensure all pools in the complex meet current sanitation standards.

The existing amenities in the 25 metre heated pool enclosure will also be refurbished and disability access improved across the complex.

Council has lodged an Expression of Interest for NSW Government Resources for Regions funding to support construction of additional elements identified in Stage 1b of the Master Plan for the complex, not being undertaken under the current Contract. These elements include the two large canopies over the Kids Wet Play Area and over the 50 metre pool, as well as shelters and landscaping.

The renewal project supports our vision for creating liveable communities by providing a modern, family-friendly pool complex which encourages participation in recreational activities and promotes community wellbeing.

Update 13 September 2018
The walls of the 50m Olympic pool have been tiled with the floor tiling already begun. The amenities block is going well, with the roof being added this week. The indoor heated pool is empty and painting has begun as part of the renewal of the Eric Arnold Heated Pool.
