Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project Underway
- All Ages
If you live in Campbelltown, you know that the words 'quick' and 'beach day' do not go hand-in-hand. A quick trip to the beach is more like a full-day excursion when you live in Campbelltown, but that's soon about to change thanks to the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project!
There have been murmurings of a "Campbelltown Beach" and "Campbelltown Lagoon" for years and we're happy to report that plans are most definitely underway for a beach/lagoon outdoor precinct for Campbelltown. The Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project has been deemed a water wonderland oasis and was started in June 2020 with an expected completion date of June 2022.
According to Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic, the unique water attraction is building on the city’s campaign for Sydneysiders to ‘re-imagine’ Campbelltown as a vibrant, thriving destination and shed all negative perceptions.
Photos have been released of the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project breaking ground (so to speak!) with the main focus now moving onto the hero of the Parklands - the 16,000-square-metre Billabong swimming pool, which will feature:
- Rockpools with streams (inspired by the rapids, waterfalls and rock pools of the Dharawal National Park)
- a 2.5-metre-deep lagoon
- zero-depth water play area with a range of interactive water elements.
The four-hectare site is located at the corner of The Parkway and Moore-Oxley Bypass, Bradbury and will also feature:
- water play
- expansive lawn areas
- pavilions with change facilities and a cafe
- picnic areas with seating
- winding pathways
- shade structures
- natural tree cover and garden beds with native plants.
