You may be surprised to find a new addition to Yate Leisure Centre – an 18 x 10 metres temporary outdoor swimming pool, believed to be one of the biggest of its kind!
Whilst the indoor pools are out of action for essential maintenance for the next 6 months, this novel option ensures there is no loss of service to the many swimmers who use the centre.
The refurbishment includes replacing pipework and installing new environmentally friendly equipment to secure the future sustainability of the swimming pools. Both will reopen in the autumn.
The temporary facility is in the Kennedy Way Car Park and comes complete with a ‘Hawaiian theme’ décor.
Manager Fran Snell said: "The £1.4 million investment by South Gloucestershire Council in the refurbishment of the pool is essential to ensure it remains fit for purpose for future generations to use and enjoy. However, we are also conscious of the number of people that use the swimming facilities at the Centre every week and we didn’t want them to miss out. That’s why we are so pleased to be able to offer the temporary pool and in doing so continue to provide high quality facilities."
