Eight out of nine lanes in the 50-metre swimming pool will be dedicated to swimming carnivals between 9am to 3.30pm.

Orange City Council manager of corporate and community relations Nick Redmond said one outdoor lane and the indoor facility was available for members of the public.

“Swimmers don’t need to book the space [outdoors]but be mindful there will be hundreds of school children about,” Mr Redmond said.

There will be extra staff on in the café and extra staff on cleaning up after each carnival.

February 21, 22 and 28 are the only weekdays within the month where there are no swimming carnivals booked.
