Paphos’ municipal pool Evagoras Pallikarides reopened today after undergoing renovation during the lockdown.
Mayor Phedon Phedonos said that the municipality took advantage of the weeks during which the pool was closed because of the coronavirus outbreak to upgrade it to satisfy the needs of a modern, high specifications sports facility.
The sanitary facilities had been expanded and upgraded. In contrast, the engine room has been updated with a new automated chlorination system, a computerized Ph control system, new filters and pumps, and a new cover.
The snack shop area has also been upgraded, and facilities were given a new coat of paint, among others, while lighting and a lawn are to be added.
Tenders will be launched for a symbolic sum of 50 euro to operate the snack shop so that it can also be used as a venue for christenings and children’s parties, he said.
Work has also been carried out at the changing rooms.
