A joint project between the Friends of the Avoca Pool, the Federal Government and Council to install pool blankets is expected to be completed in mid-December.
“The Avoca Pool will have solar blankets installed, which will increase the temperature of the pool from its coldest of 17 degrees up to about 21 degrees Celsius,” Mr Nolan said.
“It’s hoped the warmer temperature will entice more swimmers to use their local pool instead of travelling to Maryborough,” he said.
The surfaces of the Avoca and Landsborough pools have had a paint and non-slip paint applied to the pool steps and concourse.
The Landsborough toddler pool has a new sea creature and general maintenance work including re-grouting tiles, repairing leaks and repainting pool shells has also happened over the winter in Avoca and Landsborough.
