 $77m Aquatic Centre Making a Splash

Planning application for a new, game changing aquatic centre in Parramatta Park, Sydney has been lodged.

The $77 million proposals, if given the go ahead, are scheduled to be completed in 2023, replacing the Parramatta Memorial Pool which was demolished last year.

The plans include building a new state-of-the-art aquatic and leisure centre which will feature a 50-metre, 10-lane outdoor pool, indoor pools and a water playground.

Spa and sauna facilities, a fitness centre and a cafe are also part of the plans designed by Grimshaw Architects, Andrew Burges Architects and McGregor Coxall.

The proposed aquatic centre’s circular design aims to minimise noise pollution and provide optimal viewing and safety standards.

The design was the winner of an international competition in 2018 which saw four successful applications make the final shortlist, but the final winner was kept secret until last year due to a funding dispute between the council and state government.

The design for Parramatta Aquatic Centre by Grimshaw, Andrew Burges Architects and McGregor Coxall, which includes a “ring” encircling the outdoor pool that will also act as a fence.

However, the council and state government have since agreed to co-fund the new aquatic centre set situated in the Mays Hill Precinct of Parramatta Park.

Parramatta park is an 85-hectare expanse of parkland that includes the World Heritage-listed Old Government House and Domain.Andrew Burges Architects and Grimshaw, along with TCL Landscape Architects, are part of the association behind the building of the Green Square Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre, the largest aquatic centre to be built in Sydney in nearly 20 years.
