Brand New Pool Makes A Splash In The Inner West

  • Family

In 2018 the Inner West Council began a much needed major redevelopment of the Ashfield Aquatic Centre. It was a great pool before so we are expecting big things of the new centre, which opened in October 2020.

You'll now be able to dive into a brand new 50-metre outdoor pool with accessible ramp and pool divider.

There is also a new outdoor program pool with a movable floor that can change its depth up to 2.1 metres, a new children’s leisure pool, gym, cafe, crèche, sauna, steam and spa!

After 55 years in operation, the much-loved facility closed its doors early in 2018. It cost $44.7 million to build the new facility. And kids under 5 are free! 

“People will be blown away by how beautiful the new pools, gym, spa and saunas are,” said Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne.

“After such a horrendous year this awesome new facility has opened just in time to give local residents and the people of Sydney a new outdoor, summertime destination.

“The rebuilding of the old Ashfield Pool is the largest community infrastructure project in our history, and we have now delivered multi-purpose aquatics and health and fitness facility that our community will enjoy for generations to come.

“Our new facility is unique with a state-of-the-art the movable floor and other features such as the pool boom ensuring there are options to provide a diverse range of programs at all times of operation."
