An extract for the detailed report attached:
Proposed facilities include:
• 50m x 8 lane lap pool
• Widened area for adult recreational / therapeutic swimming (with possible infinity edge)
• large dedicated kids pool. (approx 21 x 10.5m)
• Tiered seating
• Control building (access control, lifesaving, kiosk, lockers, toilets)
• Disabled access at grade directly off the path
The report notes “Obviously an ocean pool experience as proposed has enormous appeal as a safe, salt water swimming environment where kids can play and adults can train free from any such concerns. Similarly this appeal resonates strongly with visitors and tourists who are well aware of W.A.’s reputation regarding sharks.
Therapeutic Swimming :Salt water bathing has for millennia been credited with therapeutic benefit and one should not underestimate the number of people who swim for health and fitness.
From early morning swimmers, through water aerobics and maternity swimming, to disabled swimmers the benefits are great and the ocean pool is a perfect facility to encourage and provide for these uses.”
