Refurbishments underway at YMCA ONE Casey recreation sites
Refurbishments have been underway at YMCA ONE Casey recreation sites Casey ARC and Casey RACE during their closure due to the COVID-19 health alert.
At Casey RACE, a new balustrade and stairs leading to the slide tower have been installed, with resurfacing being completed on both the stairs and balcony.
The one large fan in the pool hall has been replaced with 16 new fans, to allow more fresh air to circulate throughout the hall and create significant energy savings for the facility.
The main pool and office areas will also get a makeover with painting works giving the area fresh new vibes.
At Casey ARC, major toilet and change room refurbishments have already been completed with new ‘no touch’ showers installed.
A fresh layer of paint has revamped the main pool hall and office areas, and three new sand filters have been installed in the warm water pool.
Unfortunately, to enable the completion of this next round of works, Casey RACE pools won’t be reopening on 1st June 2020, as per the change to restrictions announced by the Victorian Government.
Undertaking the works now means that when restrictions ease further this year, the whole facility will be opened to the community to enjoy again, just in time for the warmer weather.
Tender responses are currently being considered to undertake retiling works in the warm water pool, leisure pool and the spa, steam and sauna areas at Casey RACE.
The retiling works are expected to take between 12-16 weeks to complete and will be commencing in the coming weeks.
During this time, members are being encouraged to access the aquatic facilities at Casey ARC. The Casey Arc 50 metre pool will be reopening from Monday 15th June for lap swimming and water-based rehabilitation only. A booking system will be available for one-hour slots (45 minutes swimming and 15 minutes to change and exit). The centre will have reduced opening hours:
Monday – Friday AM: 6.00am – 10.00am
Monday – Friday PM: 5.00pm – 8.00pm
Weekends: 8.00am – 12.00pm
The City of Casey apologise to the community for any inconvenience caused by this temporary closure of their aquatic facilities and look forward to welcoming visitors back soon to their new and improved facilities.
