Manuka Pool will officially reopen on Saturday 30 November 2019 following major upgrades
Over the past six months, the ACT Government has undertaken extensive works at Manuka Pool to ensure it meets modern health standards. An important priority has been to retain the original heritage design elements of the pool for all Canberrans to enjoy for years to come.
Along with extensive works such as a new filtration plant, refurbished poolside seating and repainting of the building, the entire pool is being retiled.
To protect and retain Manuka Pool’s important and irreplaceable heritage values, an extensive worldwide search was undertaken for tiles that remained sympathetic to the original and met modern slip resistance standards – these tiles have been imported from the Czech Republic.
While every effort has been made to ensure there is minimal impact to the 2019-20 summer swim season, an unexpected delay in delivery of the tiles from the Czech Republic means that the reopening of Manuka Pool will be delayed until Saturday, 30 November 2019.
To celebrate the official reopening of Manuka Pool on Saturday, 30 November 2019, the Canberra community is invited to a special event with free entry and activities for the whole family. Stay tuned for more information!
