Olympia Opening Date
It has been confirmed that Dundee’s eagerly awaited new Olympia swimming and leisure complex will be open to the public in time for the summer school holidays in 2013.
By late spring, local construction company Mansell will have handed over the completed new Olympia and adjoining multi-storey car park to the city council.
Leader of the Administration, Ken Guild said: “I am looking forward to this impressive new leisure complex bringing swimming, fitness and health opportunities to people of all ages in the city.
“The Olympia is a superb addition to our leisure and sporting facilities in the city with its 50metre competition pool, wave pool, rapid river, dive pool, flumes and fitness suite.
“I am confident that the new Olympia will be enthusiastically welcomed by current and future generations of swimmers.”
There will be a transitional period for the pool operators, Leisure and Culture Dundee to prepare the new building, fully test plant, procedures and systems before opening to the public.
During the transitional period between the closure of the old facility and the opening of the new Olympia, swimmers will still be able to access facilities at Lochee Swimming Baths and the community pools at St Paul’s and Grove Academies.
The opening date for the new Olympia has been delayed from spring to summer 2013 due to a variety of construction complications.
