Mangaluru: Mangaluru: Mangalore’s Smart City Initiative has unveiled another flagship project, this one located at Yemmekere, featuring an Olympic-standard swimming pool.

The swimming pool was inaugurated on November 24th of last year, in the presence of Urban Development Minister B. S. Suresh. Subsequently, a national-level master’s swimming competition was held, after which the pool remained closed.

It will now open its doors to the public for swimming, with final preparations underway. The pool, set to open in another ten days, is said to meet Olympic standards in terms of infrastructure and various facilities, including the management system.

Each section of the pool will have a dedicated coach, along with a lifeguard to guide swimmers and ensure their safety. Currently, preparations are underway for a summer camp that kids can attend during the holidays at the pool.

The overall cost of this swimming pool is Rs 24.94 crores. The pool is 50 meters long, 25 meters wide, and 1.4 to 2.2 meters deep, covering an area of 2 acres.

Amateurs can use the additional practice pool, which is 25 meters long, 10 meters wide, and 2.2 meters deep. Children, on the other hand, can utilize the miniature pool, which is 13.8 meters long, 10 meters wide, and 1.2 meters deep.

Apart from safety features, the pool offers luxurious amenities, including a gym, dormitories, changing rooms, lockers, a physiotherapy center, and other sports medicine facilities.
