Willoughby Leisure Centre Pool Area Upgrades

Council officers are currently working with Brewster Hjorth Architects to finalise the detailed designs, which are nearing completion. The next stage will be the tender for construction which occur around June 2022.
Key features of the new design are:

  • A refurbished 8 lane x 25m pool, providing optimal depths and temperatures for lap swimmers
  • New 4 lane x 20m program pool, which will be used for rehabilitation, therapy and fitness classes
  • New 4 lane x 20m learn to swim pool, providing optimal depths and temperatures for children
  • New toddler leisure play pool / splash pad, to keep the children engaged in water activities
  • New spa and sauna adjoining the pool deck, for easy access
  • refurbished reception area allowing members quicker access to the centre during peak times
  • New accessibility features for all pools and "changing place" change room to support people with mobility restrictions
  • Sustainability features such as solar panels and water harvesting, to align with the requirements of a 5 Star (Australian Excellence) Green Star rating
  • Reoriented swim school , allied health and meeting rooms
  • A new creche outdoor area and play equipment for children, allowing more families to use the centre
  • An upgraded water filtration system which will reduce water wastage and energy use and pool closures due to contamination incidents

The pool hall upgrades will deliver new, dedicated and fit-for-purpose pools for lap swimming, aquatic programs and learn-to-swim classes, replacing the current single pool which attempts to meet all these needs.

These changes will deliver improved outcomes for a very broad spectrum of users, from all age groups, abilities and backgrounds including children, older residents and CALD communities.

The much needed upgraded facility will also feature an updated roof structure and cladding.
