Rhodes Park swimming pool finally open

The recently refurbished Rhodes Park swimming pool opened to the public on first day of spring.

The pool has been closed for years due to structural problems.

The journey of fixing the Rhodes Park swimming pool goes back years, but the renovations were stopped as the work was not done properly.

Early this year, the renovations which are said to cost about R1.8-million, started again.

Renovations included a total refurbishment of the ablution facilities, electrical upgrades, tiling, painting of the interior and exterior, filtration pipe replacements and repairs to the cracked pool shell.

The facility consists of a large, competition-sized pool with a children’s pool, which was also refurbished.

The shower and change rooms have also been refurbished.

The swimming pool will have life guards at all times.

According to the ward councillor, Clr Carlos Da Rocha, the Rhodes Park swimming pool is ideally located to be used by the wider community.

The pool will benefit the community from Betrams, Kensington, Bezuidenhout Valley and the surrounding areas.

It is also accessible to surrounding schools.

The entry fee will be R5 for children and R10 for adults. The pool will be open from 10am daily.
