Outdoor pool area upgrade
We have $2.6 million to put towards design and construction of a new inclusive children’s pool, an accessible pathway down to the outdoor area, and family friendly accessible toilet and change facilities. These improvements have been made possible with funding from the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD).
Pool users told us how important this space is when we undertook the community consultation in 2018. This upgrade is an important step in being able to retain the pool for future use and ensure that our community has a modern accessible pool to use.

Construction will commence in spring 2021 and take up to 12 months. As such the outdoor pool will be closed over the 2021/22 summer period.
