Taunton Pool Closure News

Taunton Swimming Pool has now closed for an extensive refurbishment and is due to be reopening in April 2014. While the pool is closed, customers can use facilities at nearby St James St or Wellington Sports Centre.

The refurbishments at the pool include wider access and automatic doors, leading to a bright and welcoming reception area for customers with vending facilities, buggy storage, information displays and disabled access.

The pool hall will have new, bright, contemporary wall tiles and will see a large refurbishment with a fresh design, new pool edge tiles, re-grouted floor tiles and a new perspex balustrade in front of the spectator area carrying a fresh design to match the new look. There will also be refurbishment to the health suite, the re-modelling of which includes a new sauna, steam room and modern showers again with a contemporary design.

Furthermore, a new ‘Changing Village’ comprising of lockable cubicles of varying sizes for single/double occupancy, families and group changing will replace the current facility. There will also be single, lockable showers alongside the open ones, to provide greater privacy.
