Epping Aquatic Centre is a step closer to works commencing on a $26 million upgrade after Council last night approved the lodgement of a Development Application for the project.
The much-loved centre is set to be transformed with additional swimming facilities for the growing community that can be used year-round.
City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Pierre Esber said Council is committed to providing modern facilities for its residents.
“We’re making our City the home of Sydney’s best local swimming pools. We’ve opened our new Parramatta Aquatic Centre and are now turning our full attention to this $26 million upgrade for Epping,” Cr Esber said.
“It will deliver a brand-new indoor pool changeroom facilities, a new grandstand and revamped kids play area, outdoor pool upgrades, fresh landscaping and improved accessibility throughout the facility while retaining what’s special about this centre – its bushland setting.
“Once complete, these essential developments will allow current programs to expand, new swim courses to be introduced and more recreational spaces for families to enjoy as our community grows.”
Council will now go out to tender and pursue funding opportunities to deliver all three stages of the project.
Works on the site will start after the 2024 swimming carnival season and are expected to take about 18 months to complete. During this time, the pool will be closed to the public.
The Development Application for Epping Aquatic Centre will go on public exhibition in January 2024.
