Baths and GSAC extend opening hours to combat hot weather

Friday, 10 February 2017

The Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre and the Lismore Memorial Baths will both have extended operating hours on Saturday and Sunday due to the very hot weather predicted.

The Lismore Memorial Baths will open from 9am to 8.30pm on both Saturday and Sunday and the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre will be open on Saturday from 8am to 7pm and on Sunday from 10am to 7pm.

“With very high temperatures forecast over the weekend, as high as 46 degrees in some reports, we feel it’s best to keep both pools open longer until these temperatures start to drop,” Lismore City Council's Manager of Major Recreation and Cultural Facilities Tony Duffy said.

“We expect lots of people to head to the pool and we ask everyone to please be sun safe, stay hydrated and keep out of the sun. Hopefully the extended operating hours will help everyone stay a little cooler.”
