Dudley Park Aquatic Centre Reopens

Published: 06-May-2019

It's great news for local swimmers as the Dudley Park Aquatic Centre reopens today following scheduled maintenance work.

The facility is in top shape following the comprehensive overhaul.  During the closure, over a million litres of water was drained; allowing contractors to inspect areas that are  normally underwater, repair tiles and apply new sealant. Once applied, the sealant takes ten days to fully cure, which is one reason the pools need to close for an extended time.

Behind the scenes, the water treatment and heating plant was also fully inspected and maintained, before the pools were refilled and heated earlier this week.

Aquatic Facilities Manager, Matt Greenwood, says he appreciates customers’ patience during the closure, “We realise that closing during the holidays can be frustrating for some pool users, particularly parents, however this period of the year affects less customers overall and means the facility is placed to function reliably and smoothly over the next few years.”

Pool staff thank the community for their patience during the closure.
