  • All Ages

A new multi-million-dollar lifestyle precinct is on the horizon for Liverpool complete with a multi-million-dollar aquatic centre, an event lawn capable of entertaining 30,000 patrons, sprawling parklands and state-of-the-art sporting facilities.

As it stands, Woodward Park in Liverpool is nothing particularly special. It's currently home to a number of sporting and community facilities but is considered to be "hot", "dry" and "overscaled". Well, that's all about to change as the 28-hectare site will soon be home to what Liverpool City Council describe as "... a thriving hub of community activity enhancing Liverpool’s liveability as it grows."

Liverpool City Council have released the impressive Woodward Place Masterplan, which details an incredible $250-million development to transform one of Sydney's fastest-growing regions over the next 30 years.

The spectacular transformation of Woodward Place is set to turn Liverpool into a thriving lifestyle hub and regional landmark complete with a modern leisure and aquatic centre, recreational parklands, sprawling green spaces and playgrounds, an event lawn and stage to accommodate up to 30,000 patrons, regional sports facilities, and even a K-12 school for up to 1,200 students.

Former Liverpool Mayor, Wendy Waller has compared Liverpool's new Woodward Place to Sydney's Green Square but much bigger and better. 

"We deserve the amenity … We deserve it and we need it. We don’t live next door to a beach so having good aquatic centres and splash parks is really important. It’s uniquely an iconic lifestyle precinct we are creating", she said.

Unfortunately, no date has been set for when the Woodward Place Masterplan will get underway but it's rumoured that the first two stages of the masterplan, including the redevelopment of the Whitlam Leisure Centre (the site of the new 10,000-square-metre aquatic centre) and the restoration of Brickmakers Creek, could be delivered within the next five years.

We can't wait to see what's next!
