Coffs pool officially opens

FACE-painting, coin dives and a sausage sizzle enlivened the official opening of the renovated Coffs Harbour War Memorial Swimming Pool yesterday.

Music from Kidz Bizz ; a swimwear fashion parade, a fitness display and a celebrity relay were among activities that brightened a grey and drizzly day which saw water contributed from above as well as below.

After $5 million worth of renovations, Coffs Harbour has two public pools; a new 25-metre indoor pool heated to 29.5°C as well as the renovated 50-metre Olympic pool.

There is also a zero-depth splash pad for littlies with water spraying from giant ‘water toys’ and new covered areas with tables and chairs as well as renovated changing rooms and facilities.
