Aquatic a Centre of Criticism; New Council Concept Design Draws Comment

This is a great plan. However, one question... why is the hydrotherapy pool a later add-on? This region desperately needs a hydrotherapy pool immediately.

OK, I read the full story and yeah, it will be great ...!!!!! Bring it on b4 my tribe is too old !!

Great to see plans for Gympie to move forward but I'm disappointed as I thought it would be much better than this. Seems to be a shortage of parking too.

Does this indoor and outdoor pool provide a ramp for wheelchair/disabled access? Sydney's Royal Prince Alfred Park pool has won awards for concept & use ability. It is worth paying a visit to it to use some concepts for parental toilets/showers & disabled ones, too.

I think the water play area is fantastic for children who may be sensory avoiders; a lovely gentle experience for the wee ones as well. Everything does not need to be hyped up and over-the- top all of the time.

Cass Mulgrew

Looks good, so it will be open all year round? What will the prices be?

Jess Bill Thoroughgood

Yeah, you need more for the kids. While we're at it a new skating rink would be awesome. More kids' activities!

The aquatic centre, which was open for public comment before the release of concept designs, will go at the old council depot on the corner of Tozer Park Rd.

It will feature a 50m outdoor competition pool, a heated 25m indoor pool, coffee shop, splash pad, water slide, barbecue area, swimming club facilities and a grandstand from which races in the main pool can be watched.

Allowance has also been made for a future hydrotherapy pool on the site.

So, what's the problem? …
