Start looking for your swimmers and towels because after 2 years of renovation the 50m outdoor pool is coming to completion and we are ready to celebrate it’s re-opening! Book with the button below to be the first one to dive in!
Lane Cove Council will be throwing a morning ceremony on Saturday, October 3rd from 10am – 12pm with a visit from our special guest, Ian Thorpe! Due to COVID restrictions, this ceremony is by invitation only, however you can then dive into the new outdoor pool from 12:30pm onwards using our booking system below.
To avoid over-crowding we will have a booking system in place for the first three days. From Saturday 3rd October – Monday, 5th October we will allow for 30 people per hour in the pool. To lock in your spot, use the booking form at the bottom of the page.
The weekend opening hours are the following:
Saturday: 12:30pm – 8pm
Sunday: 6am – 8pm
Monday: 8am – 6pm (Public Holiday)
The eight-lane, 50-metre pool provides a flexible setup with a state-of-the-art divider allowing the pool to operate in both 25 metre and 50-metre lengths. New change rooms are located underneath the impressive new grandstand along with on-deck showers. A new marshalling area complete with a hearing loop will help provide access to high-quality facilities for competitions and carnivals, with an 800 seat grandstand for those to sit and enjoy the action in the pool.
The pool and grandstand are fitted with the latest sustainability features including energy-efficient lighting, water and energy-saving filters, heaters and pumps while an array of solar panels are fitted to the grandstand and marshalling area roof.
An adult change facility and accessible toilet are located at the pool-deck level and there is a ramp into the pool for wheelchair access. A new artwork adorning the fence reflects the themes of water and movement and acknowledges how the traditional owners of the land – the Cameraygal people – engaged with Lane Cove’s waterways.
So save the date, as you won’t want to miss making a splash this spring in Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre’s latest addition.
