Last month saw some great progress with the facility upgrades at the Gladstone Aquatic Centre.
Firstly, the renovations on the grandstand have been completed! We are now looking forward to the installation of the large shade cover, and once this is completed the entire renovation works will be concluded and the grandstand will be fully operational.
In addition to this, we have now transitioned to the new heating system, keeping our facility nice and warm on those cooler days. The heating system so far is working perfectly!
As we approach the end of the year and the festive season, we have seen a number of groups in to celebrate. Recently we held three major bookings, with a total of over 1000+ people attending.
The Gladstone Regional Council is being assisted to deliver this improved facility for the region with:
➡️ $1.2m State Government funding, through the COVID Works for Queensland Program
➡️ $1.6m through the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program
➡️ $2.4m State Government funding, through the 2021-24 Works for Queensland Program.
