From 29 February to 18 March Palmerston North City Council will be undertaking maintenance on the indoor leisure pool at the Lido.

This work will only affect the indoor leisure pool and the Lazy River - all other pools and the water slides will be open.

Some scaffolding will be noticeable when you enter the complex as staff work to carry out maintenance on the overhead ducting system.

Jocelyn Broderick, Council's senior property assets officer said the new floor liner was being installed to replace the worn and bumpy one in the indoor leisure pool.

"This will not stop users from being able to swim in the outside pools, use the spa or the water slides, the indoor lap pool or learn to swim pool," Jocelyn said.

Maintenance has been scheduled for this time of the year to keep disruption to a minimum. The work is expected to take three weeks to complete.
