HERVEY Bay swimmers will dive into the 2013-14 summer assured with the knowledge they'll be able to cool off in a newly-revamped pool.

Lanes at the council-run Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre in Wondunna opened this week after weeks of work to upgrade the centre.

The work included a new shell for the 50m pool, a roof over the 25m pool, new office areas, a refitted kiosk with new benches and a remodeled entry.

The children's water play area has also been improved.
