The 31st Summer Universiade will take place in August next year in Chengdu. As one of the training venues for the grand international sports event, the natatorium will welcome water sports athletes from around the world. To give them a good training experience and offer more conveniences to local citizens in physical workout, the city has invested heavily to renovate and upgrade the pool.
Being the largest and most popular swimming and fitness center in the downtown, the pool will see an area of renovation and extension of about 11,100 square meters, accounting for about one fifth of its total space. The roof and walls of the original indoor natatorium will be dismantled and changed into an outdoor pool, the previous outdoor diving pool and open-air swimming pool into an indoor water polo arena and an indoor swimming pool respectively, and more modern and comfortable changing and shower facilities, as well as floor heating systems will be equipped around the pools.
