Thanks to the coronavirus its official opening date is as yet unknown, but Blayney's new $4.8 million swimming complex is certainly looking, and feeling, fantastic.
Regular users of the old pool will be familiar with that wall of chlorine rich humidity as they entered the pool area.
That now is gone and the interior of the pool area will no longer fog the spectacles of visitors.
The interior actually feel much larger thanks to the edgeless pools which not only take away the risk of tripping, but are more effective in their filtration.
The warmth comes from the underfloor heating with the new air management system that circles the pool area ceiling adjusting the humidity.
Each pool has it's own heating and filtration system which also automates the chlorine dosing and ph levels.
With the lockdown giving Blayney Shire Council a few extra months without swimmers, council took the opportunity to renovate the reception area to the centre, and make a few finishing touches before the official handover.
Council's director of planning and environmental services Mark Dicker said that the once a few minor adjustments and a general tidy up are completed, the handover from Bathurst based Hines Construction would be made.
"The whole project has taken longer than planned, but most importantly it has come in at budget," he said.
An announcement will be made regarding the official opening once confirmation is obtained from the state government.
