Work is underway that will see Narooma's new public pool splashpad completed in March. Council was successful in achieving a grant through the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, announced by Peter Hendy’s office on 2 June 2016.
This commitment of $350,000 was to upgrade Narooma pool including removal of asbestos roofs, minor internal works and providing a children’s waterplay area designed to provide access for children with disabilities. A council spokesperson told the Beagle the removal of asbestos roofs and internal works were completed in 2017/18.
"The splashpad work was awarded to Parkequip Waterplay in late 2018. Work is currently underway with an expected completion date at the end of March 2019. The cost of the waterplay component of the grant is $280,000."
"The new waterplay space at Narooma pool will bring another dimension of activity to the centre at no extra cost to standard pool entry fees," the spokesperson said
