Improvements to Adelaide Aquatic Centre will continue in 2014, as efforts are made to upgrade the pool area and ensure it continues to meet the needs of local residents.
"In 2011 we saw the centre get a new roof," said City of Adelaide lord mayor Stephen Yarwood.
"The centre has been operating for 40 years now and this next stage of work will bring the pools up to a modern standard, as well as an accessible ramp in both the 50-metre pool and the leisure pool."
Residents of property in Adelaide will no doubt be glad to hear that the centre will remain open throughout the works, which are expected to begin in April and be completed by October.
Figures show there are around 714,000 visits to the facility each year, although the council anticipates this will rise once the improvements have been made.
Over the past four months alone, membership has increased 10 per cent compared to 2012-13 levels, revealed Adelaide City Council's Active City program manager Matthew Rechner.
He noted approximately 2,500 children take part in the learn to swim program on a weekly basis, so efforts will be made to keep disruption to a minimum as much as possible.
