The Brand-New Parramatta Aquatic Centre is Officially Open

Parramatta Aquatic Centre
The all-new Parramatta Aquatic Centre is a uniquely designed facility, surrounded by stunning Parramatta Parkland.

What to Expect at the New Parramatta Aquatic Centre

This incredible new facility beautifully blends with the picturesque Parramatta Park surroundings. Drawing inspiration from the historical farm enclosures and charming river swimming spots along the Parramatta River, PAC's eye-catching ring enclosure adds a touch of uniqueness to its design. 

The new building is covered by native trees to provide shade, with a beautiful gabion wall, featuring stacked stone rocks offering a really natural finish.

The circular facility has been purposely designed with an open-plan feel to optimise natural light and airflow. Swoon!

The centre is also designed with sustainability in mind and boasts state-of-the-art features, with accessibility a top priority.

PAC is a place where people of all ages, abilities, interests, and backgrounds will feel safe, welcome, and able to embrace a healthy and active lifestyle.
