New toilets, change rooms and showers will be available to swimmers at the popular Mahon Pool in Maroubra in early 2019, Randwick Mayor Kathy Neilson announced today.
The existing building, which dates from the 1950s, will be demolished to make way for new male and female toilets, change rooms, bike racks, accessible toilets and extensive landscaping. An additional smaller building will be built for the winter swimming club.
There will be temporary public toilets and space for the swim club to use during construction.
“Mahon Pool is a lovely, sheltered place to swim if people aren’t keen to tackle the waves of Maroubra Beach,” said Mayor Neilson. “It’s a favourite of both recreational and club swimmers, and both groups will appreciate the upgraded amenities which have been designed to blend in with the lovely sandstone surroundings of the area.”
A café will not be part of the design after Council resolved at a meeting not to include this in the new plans following community feedback.
Funding for the project has been allocated as part of Council’s Our Community Our Future program in the 2018-19 Capital Works Budget.Back to top
