Swimming Pool Upgrades

MITTAGONG SWIMMING CENTRE is closed for 2016/17 pool season

Mittagong Swimming Centre will not open for the 2016/17 swim season as a result of the East Coast Low storm event which lashed the region in early June 2016. The East Coast Low storm event was classified as a ‘natural disaster’ by the Office of Emergency Management.

Extensive inspections by engineers have revealed major damage to both the 25 and 50 metre pools and adjacent Plant Room. Of most concern is the structural damage sustained to the floor of the 25 metre pool.

Council will consider options for major repairs to the pool. Click here to read the latest news or scroll down the page.

    No we are not putting in an ice-skating rink :-). Bowral swimming centre is just having a bit of repair work done while the pools are empty.

    Here’s a summary of what we have been up to and will be doing:

    • Pool walls and floors have been skim coated to fill the concrete surface, ready for epoxy paint.
    • The edging (coping) that is around the rim of the pools will be tiled on the three pools to match both Moss Vale and Mittagong... Continue reading

    • Gutters have been rendered and will be painted.

    It should look pretty good when completed by September 2017 and best of all there will be no more tiles falling off!
