Parramatta will soon have a new hotspot to cool down or work up a sweat with the City’s $88.6 million swimming, fitness and wellness hub Parramatta Aquatic Centre set to open its doors to the community on 25 September.
City of Parramatta Council Lord Mayor, Sameer Pandey said the Parramatta Aquatic Centre (PAC) will be a year-round destination for the whole community to enjoy.
“Parramatta Aquatic Centre is a world-class community facility and will be the premier destination for locals to swim, train, rest and recover,” Mayor Pandey said.
“As the weather warms up, you’ll be able to cool down in the pool, work out in the gym, relax in the spa, steam and sauna or simply enjoy a coffee in the café.”
The PAC will be home to the City’s first all abilities pool with ramps to enter the 50m and 25m pool and a level, beach-style entry into the water ‘splash and play’ zone. There will also be accessible change rooms as well as lifts and ramps to all indoor and outdoor areas.
“Parramatta has waited patiently for this moment to arrive and the wait will definitely be worth it as the new Parramatta Aquatic Centre is so much more than just a place to swim,” said Member for Parramatta, Donna Davis.
“The Parramatta Aquatic Centre is an incredible fitness and relaxation centre for the entire community, whether you are just learning to swim, wanting a regular workout or looking for a local summer spot to cool off – the Parramatta Aquatic Centre has it all.“
The $88.6 million project is being co-funded by Council and the NSW Government, which is investing $38.5 million from the Restart NSW Fund.
