The Gold Coast Aquatic Centre was formally opened this month, with a free pool party for the public. The $41 million facility will be one of the key Commonwealth Games venues and has already been used for the Pan Pacs with the Pan Pac Masters just around the corner. It’s the first Commonwealth Games venue to open to the public, but more significantly, it now eases the pressure on the other public pools around the coast who’ve picked up the slack for those who love to follow the long black line for fitness.
Casual visits to the pool are the same price as for other City Pools and the complex includes a new FINA standard ten lane 50m competition pool, an eight lane 50m training pool, a dive pool with 10m platform, a 25m pool, an indoor learn-to-swim centre, a kid’s play pool, a dry dive training facility, a gym, café and conference facilities.
