The popular recreation facility was due to reopen in late March but it was delayed by the Covid-19 restrictions.
The fitness and sports halls at Graham Condon are already open under level 2 and the centre’s swimming pool will reopen from May 25.
Other Christchurch City Council pools - Jellie Park, Taiora QEII and Pioneer - opened this week.
Council head of recreation, sports and events Nigel Cox said the maintenance and refurbishment at Graham Condon Recreation and Sports Centre was needed because it had been well-used since it opened more than eight years ago.
“We’re delighted to have this essential work complete and to be able to reopen Graham Condon to the public again after a longer closure than we’d originally planned.
"It’s a very busy centre and we know people will be keen to get back into their sport, fitness and swimming there.”
The upgrade was carried out in two phases, starting with improvements to the reception area and gym and then the swimming pools and changing areas.
"The work will improve the efficiency of the entire facility. It includes changing to energy efficient lighting, fresh paint, new flooring, replacement of showers and toilets and pool-side works such as tiling repairs. Air and water quality has also been improved through upgrades to the pool plant and HVAC system.
Online bookings are now essential for council pools, fitness centres and group fitness classes to help manage numbers and avoid waiting times.
