March 2022

Parramatta’s aquatic and leisure site is once again bustling with activity after several weeks of heavy rain. 

All three of the new centre’s pools – the 50 metre, 10-lane outdoor pool, 25 metre indoor recreation pool, and dedicated Learn to Swim pool – have now been fully excavated, marking an exciting milestone for the project.

About 60 workers are now on site building various structural elements of the facility and installing key utilities such as in-ground drainage, aquatic hydraulics and electricals.

The building that will house the new Health and Wellness Centre, which will include a modern gym and rooms for activities such as yoga and circuit training classes, has also been completed. In the coming weeks, work will begin on the building’s glass façade and internal walls, while the roof over the indoor pools will continue to take shape. 

Pool Update March 2022

The ring enclosure that will define the look of the new centre is also starting to emerge. The striking design is a key feature of the facility and takes inspiration from swimming enclosures along the Parramatta River, while blending in with the surrounding parklands. 

The new aquatic and leisure centre will be a Parramatta icon and an important asset for the City. It will provide a place for the community to meet and play, learn to swim and improve their health and wellbeing all year round.
