Tidal pools ready for summer
Work on the reconstruction of Forty Baskets and Little Manly Tidal Pools is now complete just in time for the warmer weather.
Both pools were rebuilt under our Tidal Pool Renewal Program.
The pools were rebuilt using more durable materials, which provide lower maintenance costs and prolong their life, while maintaining their heritage appearance.
High quality, strong netting replaced the existing shark bars as it is more environmentally friendly and provides additional habitat for sea life such as sea horses.
Steel piles wrapped in black HDPE was used to replace the existing wooden piles as it is more durable and will need to be replaced less often, meaning less disturbance to the sea-bed replacing piles and reducing ongoing maintenance costs.
