SWIMMING pools at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre closed due to plumbing problems will reopen Monday 11 December.
The main pools at the leisure centre have been unavailable since 12 October.
Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said: “To show our appreciation to our members for their patience and understanding throughout the closure, there will be a range of activities during the week, including free breakfast, kids’ activities and giveaways daily.”
The PARC’s main 50-metre pool, aquatic playground and a learn-to-swim pool will be back in use from Monday in time for the summer months.
The Times previously reported it cost nearly $1 million to repair the fault including rust on brackets and pipes underneath swimming pools.
Centre members were not charged membership fees while the pools remain closed.
Other PARC activities such as the gym and wellness centre were open.
