The $20.2 million project commenced on 1 August 2016 as a result of a $3.8 million boost from the State Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and $3 million from the State Government’s Community Facility Funding Program – “Better Pools”.
The aquatic facilities were more than 30 years old, with the pools and associated plant prone to regular failure which intermittently caused the shutdown of parts of the aquatic area. The facility attracts in excess of 760,000 visits on an annual basis and the redevelopment will bring the pool up to a modern day standard to ensure and increase continued usage.
Universal design has been considered and ramp entry to the pools and accessible change facilities have been incorporated into the design.
