Home Hill Pool to re-open 8 April 2019

Home Hill Pool will re-open on Monday 8 April 2019.

Test samples of the concrete structure have been taken and further maintenance is currently underway.

Refilling of the pool will commence on Friday 5 April so the pool is ready for swimmers at 5.30am on Monday 8 April 2019.

Ayr Pool is open for business during this time for your aquatic needs.

Council thanks you for your understanding while work is undertaken.

Home Hill Pool closing for structural tests from 30 March 2019

Home Hill Pool will be closed on Saturday 30 March 2019 for 7-9 days.

During this time Burdekin Shire Council will undertake testing of the concrete shell to check the health of the concrete structure which is approximately 60 years old. For this testing to occur the pool must first be emptied.  Repairing the shell requires curing time before the pool can be refilled – this provides uncertainty on re-opening at this stage.

Council thanks you for your understanding while work is undertaken.
