While the doors have been closed at Casey RACE, Council has been taking advantage of the quiet time to complete a raft of improvement works right across the facility ready for last week’s reopening.
With restrictions still in place on the numbers of people who can visit the facility, the warm water pool has been opened first along with the health club (gym) and the 50m pool is on track to open on Monday 16 November. Other areas are scheduled to reopen over coming weeks.
As part of the $5 million upgrade of Casey RACE, retiling work has been completed on the 50-metre pool, warm water pool and leisure pool and splash park.
The stairs and balustrade leading to the slide tower have been replaced and renovations to the spa, steam and sauna area are nearing completion.
The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system has been upgraded throughout the entire facility, including the installation of 16 new fans to replace the one large fan in the pool hall, which will allow more fresh air to circulate and create significant energy savings for the facility.
Painting has also been completed in the main pool hall, health club and office areas.
