PRARIEWOOD FITNESS CENTRE
The facility comprises an indoor 25 metre 8 lane pool connected to a leisure pool with water slides, play fountain, learners and toddlers pools and a beach entry. Additional features include a gymnasium a multi-function room, child minding facilities and a sauna. The pool and especially the more active beach entry and kids area are adjacent to the entry foyer to ensure good supervision and active viewing for those involved in other activities in the centre.
In the 2nd Stage, the new pool was designed to attract local sports clubs and schools by offering facilities to FINA standards for training and competition.
The moveable boom enables the pool to be used in a number of modes including 50m competition, men’s and women’s water polo, 25m lap and recreational. Associated works include a 1000 seat spectator stand, kiosk, change facilities and plant. The new facilities were all designed within the framework of the original masterplan for the site.
