THE city’s new £10m swimming pool will open on Saturday, October 20.
Wakefield Council announced the date for Sun Lane Leisure this morning.
At a council meeting yesterday, leader Coun Peter Box said he hoped a paralympic swimmer could be invited to swim the first length of the pool.
But more information about the launch of the new pool will be made available over the coming weeks.
Council bosses had hoped for a September opening, but announced last month that there were delays.
