The City’s public swimming pools and spray parks are in their final stretch of preparedness ahead of the summer season. Of the City’s 38 swimming pools, 32 will open this season, as well as four of the six spray parks.
But the public facilities will open in time for the school holidays in October.
Furthermore, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia van der Ross said due to the pandemic most facilities had to be closed or only allow a limited number of people to enjoy the facilities.
The areas that the swimming pools will open for the season are Athlone, Bellville, Bellville South, Bonteheuwel, Delft, Goodwood, Hanover Park, Manenberg, Parow North, Parow Valley, Ravensmead, Ruyterwacht, Brown’s Farm, Lentegeur, Mnandi, Muizenberg, Newlands, Retreat, Westridge, Wynberg, Zandvlei, Kuilsriver, Blue Downs, Khayelitsha, Monwabisi, Strand, Kensington, Langa, Long Street, Trafalgar, Wesfleur and Sea Point.
‘I want to encourage our visitors to make use of and take ownership of these facilities.
They are there for all our residents to enjoy responsibly and it is our collective duty to ensure that it’s not vandalised, burgled or broken down,’ said Councillor Van der Ross.
