New swimming facility in co-location with the viewing center?
Engesund Fiskeoppdrett AS is in the process of planning a new, modern reception center for the viewing center at Meieritomta. Together with Fitjar development, Fitjar municipality and Fitjar kraftlag, the vision is to co-locate the viewing center with a new swimming facility on a somewhat expanded Meieri site. The facility will also house new premises for Fitjar Kraftlag.
A preliminary sketch envisions a facility with a 25-meter pool, which could include a sauna, jacuzzi, diving tower, slide and possibly a café. In addition, there are plans for a possible youth club and senior center.
A waterpark delivers public health to all age groups and all functional levels
"We are excited and hope that this will be a great venue for everyone.
If we get this right, we will have a very attractive location for the swimming facility on the seafront in Fitjar town center, and the exhibition center will have an attractive neighbor.
Excerpt from Sunnhordland:
-"If we do this here, we will have a proper facility. We don't want to do anything halfway," says Sandvik.
The initiators have made a rough estimate that the bathing facility could cost between NOK 140 and 160 million.
In the process, they have looked to neighboring municipalities such as Bømlo and Austevoll, and have been impressed by the new bathing facilities there.
Sandvik believes that the plans are fully in line with Fitjar Utvikling's purpose, and that it will be an important public health measure in the village.
-"This will be suitable for all ages, all functional levels, all walks of life, and we can have a variety of activities there," says Sandvik.
