Design features include sculptural acrylic ceiling tubes above the indoor pool that allow diffused natural light to flood the space. A landscaped courtyard has a viewing deck, terraced grandstand seating and a 120m long shade structure equipped with solar panels.
At the entry, a sweeping, curved wall with detailed feature brickwork creates a delightful backdrop to the landscaped forecourt. This contribution to the wider public realm through quality design is a tangible demonstration of Gympie Council’s commitment its community.
