Regional Aquatic Facility

At its meeting on Monday 25 May 2020, Council resolved to investigate further the feasibility of building a new Regional Aquatic Facility at Todd Park, within the Carss Park Sport and Recreation Precinct. 

Council considered the final Regional Aquatic Facility Site Suitability and Feasibility Study prepared by industry experts Otium Planning Group, which reviewed four potential locations for a new Regional Aquatic Facility in the Georges River area. 

The Study recommended Todd Park in Blakehurst as the top ranking site, potentially providing the Georges River community with access to a state-of-the-art Regional Aquatic Facility. This facility could feature a mix of aquatic areas, health and wellness facilities and social amenities. One of the key advantages of this site in the study is the direct access it provides vehicles entering Todd Park directly from Princes Highway. 

The facility described in the Regional Aquatic Facility Suitability and Feasibility Study requires a site area of about 0.9ha of the entire Todd Park site area which totals 4.0ha including the existing carpark. This would provide plenty of open space for a playing field, a suitable area for children to play and an additional car park.

An aquatic facility at Todd Park would have the potential to offer multi-faceted sport and recreational experiences, cater to a much broader section of the community than aquatic centres which are currently available in the area, and offer a place for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy sport and recreation into the future.

A multi-use 50 metre, 10 lane pool catering for both competitive and recreational swimmers, a learn to swim and leisure pool, and toddler’s water area, are also possible facilities for the site. The facility could also incorporate Community meeting areas, a weights room, café and areas for community socialising.

On the basis of the report’s recommendation, Council will now commence the next stage of detailed technical investigations including service, utility, geotechnical and civil investigations for Todd Park.

Council commissioned Otium Planning Group to conduct the Regional Aquatic Facility Site Suitability and Feasibility Study in 2019 to inform its plans for development of a potential future third local aquatic facility, to better meet the current and future needs of the Georges River community.
