The Aqua Energy Redevelopment will enable the replacement of the 25-metre indoor pool and pool hall, which is 51 years old. There is also greater need for all abilities access to the entire facility, which at the moment is limited to only some areas.
Plans for the redevelopment include:
The new development will not only see the 25-metre pool replaced but will improve accessibility and programming opportunities throughout the entire facility.
Improvements captured for all abilities access include ‘Changing Places’ amenities for older children and adults with high support needs. As well as the elimination of all internal ramps and stairs, creating a single level, universally accessible facility throughout.
School and member access to and from the precinct will also be improved with an upgraded entry from the Guthridge Parade car park.
