Ashfield Aquatic Centre project

Council approved the redevelopment of the Ashfield Aquatic Centre on 27 February 2018.  

Read the meeting minutes about Ashfield Aquatic Centre redevelopment

The redevelopment will include a state-of-the-art mix of contemporary facilities.

The redevelopment is needed to keep the facilities at an appropriate usable standard, and the 50 metre outdoor pool is nearing the end of its technical life.

We invited the community to help create a vision for the redevelopment, engaging centre users, clubs and the wider community during May and June 2017.  These outcomes informed the redevelopment design.

Ashfield Aquatic Centre is now closed for the redevelopment. 

Redevelopment plan

The final plan for the redevelopment of the Ashfield Aquatic Centre will include:

  • A new 50m outdoor pool with accessible ramp and pool divider
  • A new outdoor pool with floating floor that can change its depth, opening it up for a wide range of uses
  • A new children’s leisure pool with landscaping and green wall
  • An improved entrance with customer service area, change rooms, crèche and retail space
  • A new health and fitness centre
  • New community meeting room facilities
  • A community green space and covered seating
  • Landscaped areas and terraces for the external pools
  • Increased parking spaces.

What’s happening now?

Redevelopment will begin with the decommissioning of the site. 

The Ashfield Aquatic Centre is now closed and the redevelopment is expected to be completed in early 2020.
