Portland Pool set for opening weekend

By Portland Pool
Posted: 27 Nov 2020
The Portland Pool is set to get its season underway this weekend. With more fantastic warm weather forecast it is great timing for locals and visitors alike who enjoy coming out to the community operated pool.

The Portland Pool is a community operated pool and each season is operated by a small group of hard working volunteers, but t is not just during the season that the work is done, the off season also sees maintenance and service of important infrastructure take place.

This year during the off season the chlorine controllers, pumps and cleaners were all upgraded thanks to generous donations from NSW State Government and our corporate supporters.

The pool is currently looking for additional lifeguards for the season, the lifeguards are paid positions and are essential for the pool to continue its operation.

"We'd like to thank all the sponsors of the pool and the committee members that continue to support us, but most of all we just want to see people come out to Portland, enjoy a great day out at the pool and enjoy one of the last good old fashioned Aussie public pools in the region," said Mr Taylor.
