The pool facilities at the Margaret River Recreation Centre will closed from 16 April 2018 to the 7 May 2018 to allow for the dehumidifier project to proceed.

The pool facilities will reopen for public use from 8 May 2018, however patrons should note while the pool will be heated the air space heating will not be switched on until the expected  finished project date of the  25 May 2018.

The project will deliver a designated Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning system with improvements in operational costs and power savings to the centre.

The facility attracts in excess of 150,000 visits on an annual basis and the replacement will bring the pool hall up to a modern day standard to ensure and increase continued usage.

Council encourages you to visit and the Margaret River Recreation Centre Facebook page for further operational information during this time.
