The bathroom amenities at Norville Park Pool are set to undergo major renovations for the first time since the venue opened in 1983.
As the swim season finishes on 30 April, work will be undertaken to the amenity block including a whole new refit featuring new toilets, shower cubicles and unisex facilities.
Bundaberg Regional Council Sport and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Vince Habermann said, while maintenance had been carried out previously, the amenities were now in need of a major overhaul.
“The bathroom amenities will be completely refurbished, including shower facilities plus family cubicles,” he said.
“The male showers will go from one open shower area to four individual shower cubicles while the four existing shower cubicles in the female block will be demolished and renewed.
“Accessible facilities will be added along with family sized changerooms, ambulant facilities and the overall number of toilets within the block will double.”
Cr Habermann said the upcoming project built on a range of improvements already completed at the pool complex and would provide much improved amenities for the benefit of all pool patrons.
“In 2019 Norville Park Pool was rejuvenated with a new water play area, featuring a towering 2.9m slide and 151 litre capacity tipping bucket,” he said.
“These features added to the already popular venue, which boasts an Olympic size pool and toddler splash area.
“The new amenity block works will continue to bring the facilities up to the high standard of the rest of the pool area.”
Swim season at Norville Park Pool finishes on 30 April and resumes in September 2021.
