Update - December 2022
Update: December 2022
The outdoor pools at Katoomba Sports and Aquatic Centre will not open before Christmas 2022.
Despite great effort from our contractors and staff, the more than 70 days of inclement weather that have occurred during construction of the pools, together with ongoing, industry-wide material and supply shortages, mean we have been unable to complete some parts of the work required and open the pool gates to the community.
Given the time of year with contractors, suppliers and consultancies breaking over Christmas and the New Year, we anticipate works to recommence in late January 2023 with the outdoor pools still expected to open towards the end of the current summer swimming season.
Council’s Leisure and Aquatic Centre staff, together with all the staff working on the project, share the community’s disappointment that the outdoor pools will not be open this year as anticipated and apologise for the delay.
The indoor pools and facilities at Katoomba Sports and Aquatic Centre remain open, together with our swim centres at Lawson, Blackheath, Springwood and Glenbrook.
We appreciate your patience as we work to complete the outdoor pool upgrades at Katoomba as quickly as possible in 2023.
