WIRAC pool closed for winter maintenance

Southern Downs Regional Council and YMCA have taken advantage of the recent COVID-19 lockdown to undertake necessary winter maintenance on the Warwick Indoor Recreational and Aquatic Centre pool.

While the gym facility has now reopened following the easing of social distancing restrictions, the pool remains closed during continued works.

WIRAC Manager Karen Peters said that it was prudent and necessary to conduct regular and routine maintenance of the facility.

“The pool facility and WIRAC as a whole is a hub for the local community and maintaining our facilities ensures they are available for members and visitors to enjoy,” she said.

“The COVID-19 closure gave us a head start to undertake some winter maintenance works and minimise the down time to the community.

“The pool will reopen as soon as maintenance is completed.”

The YMCA and Council are working closely together to ensure the pool will be operating safely and at full capacity as soon as possible.

The YMCA is committed to ensuring all important measures are put in place to ensure everyone's safety, and that we meet the Government guidelines via a COVID Safety Plan.
