Petone's McKenzie Pool will be closed over summer for a major revamp.
"While we know it's inconvenient for the pool to be closed this year the end result is that the community will have a great new modern facility for the 2013-14 season," Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said.
The Hutt City Council has four other pools in its network.
The pool's $2.2m McKenzie Pool redevelopment is currently in the detailed design stages.
Designers LHT Design expect to file a resource consent application in November.
Demolition should begin in December, and construction in January 2013.
The new-look McKenzie Pool will open in November next year.
It will include a 25m lap pool, a new 15m by 7m learners' pool, new changing sheds, associated pumps and machinery and a barbecue area.
A Hutt City Council report last year suggested closing the 78-year-old pool, amid concerns it was run-down and not being well used.
However the community forced the council to back-pedal on the proposal.
