Final touches are being added to the region’s premier pool ahead of its opening later this month.
The Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre will open on October 27, almost a year behind schedule.
Olympic gold and silver medallist Brooke Hanson will be present at the opening of the multi-million dollar facility.
The centre will include wellness suites, program rooms and an all-abilities warm water exercise pool with an access ramp.
The City of Greater Bendigo said the facility will deliver programs for infants to the elderly and an important part of the build was accessibility.
Some of the rooms will also have hearing loops, improving the exercise experience for those with impaired hearing, while mobility scooter charging points will be in various locations.
The COGB in July said wet weather, a delay in the delivery of materials to the site and revision of some designs to ensure the facility functions at its best were the main reasons for the delay.
The facility was due to open in December 2017.
