Willoughby Leisure Centre Pool Area Upgrades

Take a look at the fly through showcasing the proposed new pools and features.

The existing aquatic facilities are reaching the end of their life and will be redesigned to best meet the needs of our community.

Concept plans have been developed based on community aquatic needs and stakeholder feedback. We sought community feedback on these designs throughout September 2020. A Consultation Summary report is located in the supporting documents section of this page.

In response to the comments and feedback received, the final schematic design drawings have now been refined for a Development Application (DA) and can be found in the supporting documents section of this page.

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 toddler play 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

Where to from here?

On 9 November, Council approved the lodgement of a Development Application for the major pool upgrade works at Willoughby Leisure Centre, based on the final schematic design drawings included in the document library. It is anticipated that the DA will be lodged by the end of 2020.
