Good news for brave lap swimmers with the outdoor Eureka pool in Ballarat set to re-open this morning, 3 weeks earlier than planned.
Outdoor pools in Regional Victoria were cleared to open in mid September, however the City of Ballarat announced it could not meet that timeline given the maintenance that was required following the winter closure.
There'll be no swimming at the Eureka pool just for fun however with only laps allowed.
You'll need to book in advance, you'll have 45 minutes only and your own lane, all in an effort to keep you safe during the pandemic.
The Eureka pool will be open Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 12.30pm and at weekends from 7.30am to 12.30pm.
The indoor Ballarat Aquatic Centre remains closed under current Covid guidelines.
