Willoughby Leisure Centre Pool Area Upgrades

On 17 August 2021, the Sydney North Planning Panel unanimously approved the Development Application (DA) for the upgraded facility which will provide an inclusive, vibrant and accessible aquatic facility, meeting the diverse needs of the local community.

Key features of the new design are:

  • An 8 lane x 25m rebuild of the existing pool
  • New 4 lane x 20m program pool
  • New 4 lane x 20m learn to swim pool
  • New children's leisure pool / splash pad
  • New spa and sauna adjoining the pool deck
  • A refurbished roof structure
  • Refurbished reception area
  • Expanded entry area and improved pool deck visibility
  • Reoriented swim school, physiotherapy and meeting rooms
  • Sustainability features such as solar panels and water harvesting
  • Improved water filtration and management
  • Additional seating

These multiple bodies of water, differently configured to provide a variety of water depths and temperatures, open up opportunities to provide a range of programs to residents of all ages and backgrounds including children, older residents and CALD communities.

The much needed upgraded facility will also feature an updated roof structure, refurbished reception and sustainability features including solar panels and water harvesting.

Council has undertaken extensive consultation with the community and stakeholders throughout this project and the concept design reflects this.

Council officers will work with the project's architects to develop detailed designs, prior to tendering the construction of the project.
