Jellie Park Recreation Centre’s Recreation Pool will be closing from Thursday 23 January 2020 until Friday 31 January 2020, at the latest.

The closure will allow investigation of the pool tank and reduce the risk of any unexpected findings and/or significant delays when relining the pool tank in the second quarter 2020. The pool tank is being relined due to a significant number of tiles failing, the cost of temporarily remediating the tiles, and customers and staff receiving regular cuts to their feet.

During the closure (23- 31 January 2020) the community is being encouraged to utilise the pools still available atJellie Park, visit one of the other Recreation & Sport Centres (Tairoa:QEII or Pioneer), or alternatively one of the Council’s outdoor summer pools.

All learn to swim classes will continue to be delivered in the outdoor 50m pool during the closure.
