Improvement works

Council is investing $3m to deliver improvement works at Harold Holt Swim Centre to ensure the centre meets the needs of our next generation of swimmers and exercise enthusiasts.

These works will include retiling pools, replacement of lights with energy efficient LED fittings, accessibility improvements to the outdoor pool, refurbishment of the outdoor change rooms and upgrading spectator seating.

Works will be scheduled and staged to avoid inconvenience where possible, however at times equipment or facilities will be unable to be used. Signage will identify when this is the case in advance of works commencing.

Current and scheduled works are outlined below. Additional works are being programmed for the second half of 2019 and throughout 2020 and more information will be available as this is finalised.
