The Ciudad Deportiva Gran Canaria in Las Palmas was reopened this week after a period of refurbishment carried out by the Government of Gran Canaria with an investment of around 370,000 euros.
The Government department replaced the glass windows around the swimming pool, remodelled the changing rooms, the water pump room and replaced the roof, which was part of further planned investments this year to improve various sport facilities in the city at a total cost of one million euros.
The reopening ceremony was attended by the President of the Government of Gran Canaria, Antonio Morales, and the Sport Councillor of the Government, Angel Victor Torres, who inspected the improvement works, which will benefit the 500 swimmers who use the pool daily. The Government representatives stressed that it had been necessary to modernise and clean up the existing roof, which was 25 years old, and to install improvements that would meet all safety standards for swimmers.
The remodelled roof of 1750 square metres has been built with the so-called sandwich sheet technique, consisting of two metal plates covering a thermal insulator, which should provide greater durability and strength, and better waterproofing and insulation. In addition, a new LED lighting system has been installed and the pool’s filtering mechanism has been completely renovated.
