Leisure Pool Project


Waterbabies can look forward to making a splash this summer in the revamped children’s Splash and Play zone at the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre.

The existing leisure pool is being fully refurbished and is closed while works are underway. The all new play zone includes a slide, tipping bucket and fountains, installed on a new, soft fall surface.

The leisure pool will be closed until early December 2020, with the reopening date determined by COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

For safety reasons, the 25m pool and leisure pool will be permanently separated by a new concrete dividing wall. The dividing wall includes a sliding gate to allow accessibility access from the leisure pool through to the 25m pool. 
Construction of the concrete dividing wall commenced early September, with this component being the initial construction task to be undertaken with the intent to open the 25m pool for use, prior to the completion of the works in the leisure pool area. 
The works in the 25m pool are due to be completed in late October (pending COVID-19 impact on contractor supplies).

Further information about projects in the Centre is available on the redevelopment page.
