EVERYONE can look forward to more room for fun in Galston Aquatic Centre's main pool next summer.

Hornsby Council's draft plan for the 2014/2015 financial year includes $150,000 towards the completion of the Galston Learn To Swim School within the centre at 412 Galston Road, Galston.

"The money will cover building the Learn To Swim School pool," the council's spokesman said.

"As the new pool is specifically for Learn To Swim, it will free-up space in the main pool [existing centre] allowing for more activities there."

He said construction should start this financial year, with the pool to be completed by the end of 2014.

A further $90,000 is budgeted for a dehumidifier. Subject to council approval, the contractor will start in June.
