The Whyalla Recreation Centre main pool is back open.


NEW SURROUNDS: Swimmers are back in the pool after the new outside surface was completed this week.

Management of the Whyalla Recreation Centre and the City of Whyalla would like to let everyone know the main pool and aquatic area has returned to full operation.

The main pool area and, at times, the aquatic area were closed for nearly a week while work was completed to resurface the area around the pool.

This work, commissioned by Council, was to provide an even safer, non-slip surface and to finish off the surrounds of the main pool after concrete was dug up to fix a leak earlier this year.

With the new surface now completed and the pool cleaned up, swimmers are back in the blue.

The management of recreation centre and Council apologise for the inconvenience to members and casual swimmers. This work is, however, vital to continue providing a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone at the recreation centre and the closures were to ensure everyone’s safety.

All YMCA run aquatic classes and activities are back to normal. For more information about the pool and the recreation centre, call 8645 5488 or check out the website

The recreation centre on Racecourse Road is Council property with all facilities and classes managed by the YMCA.
