The proposals were revealed at a recent family friendly event in Linwood Park that attracted more than 300 people from across the community.

The feedback we got was very positive – we’ve had some great suggestions from individuals for tweaks here and there, which our designers are looking forward to going through, and the main message we heard from the community was that they can’t wait until it’s built.

A second round of engagement – this time on the concept itself – will be undertaken in April 2019.

The high profile location on the corner of Linwood Avenue and Smith Street was chosen as the site for the planned Linwood pool. The facility will be built at 141 Smith Street, which is on a section next to Linwood Park that faces onto Linwood Avenue.

The location was finalised by the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community on 16 May after extensive community consultation on possible locations for the planned new pool facility. Read more on Newsline.
