Refurbished Parkes Swimming Pool looks forward to third year of increased use

Refurbished Parkes Swimming Pool looks forward to third year of increased use
November 11, 2014

The Parkes Swimming Pool in the western NSW town of Parkes has reopened for its third season since its $2 million refurbishment in 2012.

Prior to 2012, the facility’s 50 metre pool had faced a range of maintenance issues common to many ageing aquatic centres with water leakage and rising maintenance and operating costs.

Refurbished using Hydrocare Pools' innovative Waterzone Pool reinforced vinyl swimming pool lining system, the upgrade also included the replumbing of its water filtration and management system that maintains the pool's water clarity and its temperature around a tepid 27 degrees.

The refurbishment also included the installation of splashpad and play features with the facility’s toddlers pool along with an all-new filtration plant as well as the installation of more than 400 metres2 of Helicol solar panels on the roof of amenity buildings.

In each of the two years since its refurbishment, 2012/13 and 2013/14, the facility has enjoyed increased usage.

Last season, attendances were boosted by patrons being able to purchase a Family Day Pass to the Parkes Swimming Pool for $13 - a discounted price when compared to a ‘per person’ entry.
