Swimming pool at Majura?

Does anyone have any information on the planned swimming pool to be located at Majura?

Interested to know if it will be a swimming pool for swimmers (ie: lap lanes) or more of a swimming “complex” with slides, whirlpools and the like.

Also, if there is any information out there on when we can expect it to be opening?

They call it an aquatic centre, and I hear they’ve already got bookings for kids’ learn to swim programs. there’s one pool that is apparently 25 metres long, looks bloody small to me but that’s what they reckon. And there’s two square-shaped pool things next to it. All are at the concrete and blocks stage and they just started building the building frame last week.

The whole thing seems really small. They’ve begun mentioning it on the Airport TV ads, but there’s nothing on the Majura Park website.

It’s going to be a Kings Swim School. There’s one in MacGregor behind the old petrol station.

It’ll be a 25m pool for kids swim school and those who do aqua therapy. Not really open for public swimming.

All I know is that it’s a 25m lap pool, haven’t heard anything about being a waterpark type thing but given the area and the space it is currently taking up I doubt it’s going to be more than a pool and change rooms/shop.
