Stage One Upgrade

Page hero image

After considerable engagement with the community, the design for stage one was finalised in August 2021 and the tender process for construction was completed in November.

Stage one work commenced in March 2022 and is expected to continue through to the middle of 2023. The entire site, including the pool, will be inaccessible for the duration of the construction period.

Current Activity

  • Large seas caused significant wave overtopping in March and April and the site sustained minor damage.
  • The process to remove sand from the pool has now recommenced, with sand removed from the pool being placed on the adjacent rock shelf. This activity will require the temporary closure of the Canoe Pool and lower level pedestrian walkway on Thursday 12 May. Site signage will be updated to reflect the closure of the Canoe Pool.
  • During May, work will commence on the new pool entry stairs, ramps and repairs to the pool walls.
  • During May and June, work will commence on preparing for the installation of the new pump system.

The community is reminded that the entire site is inaccessible for the duration of the construction period. We ask that for your own safety, you please adhere to site signage and follow instructions of site personnel.
