Woonona rock pool amenities block closed for three weeks for maintenance work

THE amenities block at Woonona rock pool will be closed and fenced off for three weeks to allow for Wollongong City Council to undertake maintenance work.

During the works, the rock pool and external showers will remain open to swimmers and two temporary toilets will be available for community use.

The work includes:

  • Painting the building’s interior and exterior. Areas to be painted include the shower areas, doors and frames, columns, arches and handrail observation area.
  • Removing and replacing damaged and broken tiles in the toilet, shower and sink areas.
  • Replacing rusted out electrical light cage covers

A Council spokesperson said the work is due to start this week, likely tomorrow (Thursday, May 11) and is expected to take about three weeks to complete, depending on weather conditions.

“While crews are on site, the amenities will be fenced off for community safety and two temporary toilets will be placed near to the existing amenities block for community use,” the spokesperson said.

“The rock pool and amenities’ external showers will remain open and available to swimmers during the works.”
