Langlands Pool Upgrade Stage 1 Almost Finished

The first stage of the Langlands Park Memorial Pool upgrade at Panitya Street is almost finished and the second stage of the construction has begun.

Operators of the facility confirmed in a Facebook post that the gym and the clubhouse have been demolished to make way for a new building. The newly-improved 10-metre program pool, on the other hand, has been fitted with the steel frames for the roof that will provide ample shade for the swimmers.

The entrance of the Langlands Park Memorial Pool has also been moved to the Memorial Gates, thus making it easier to access both the pool and the East Tigers’ grounds.

According to the Brisbane City Council, the $8-million pool upgrade will also include the repositioning of the existing 50-metre outdoor pool, the addition of a 25-metre indoor pool, and the construction of an aqua park for the children.

The improvements will also modernise the facility’s amenities and features, including the landscaping. Access ramps will also be added to the pool and the changing room facilities.

On the 3rd of March, one day before demolition commences, the Langlands Park Memorial Pool will host the Last Swim event to commemorate the pool’s 60th year of operation.

The Langlands Park Memorial Pool is open daily from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The 10-metre program pool will be operational throughout the construction so there will be no interruption to the swim classes.
