Corowa Aquatic Centre
The project to deliver a new Aquatic Centre in Corowa is progressing well with construction works at the Ball Park precinct site on schedule for a March 2021 opening.
Council made the decision to endorse option four, which consists of a 50 metre pool, 25 metre indoor pool and splash park at an ordinary meeting of Council in May 2019.
Funding for a splash park was announced in October 2019 by the NSW Government, which secured the foundation for a $750,000 splash park to be built as part of the redevelopment of the pool complex.
Since endorsing option four, Council has been extremely proactive and investigated many options and models presented to them based on extensive community consultation. Council has been assisted throughout this process by the Swimming Pool Advisory Committee which consists of Councillors, pool users, youth council members and swimming club representatives.
The tender to construct the new facility was awarded to Hines Construction in October 2019. The project is expected to cost up to $10.3 million and is funded by Council, alongside monumental contributions from the NSW State Government.
This Aquatic Centre will be an asset not just for the community today, but one that will meet our communities’ needs for the next 50 years.
At Council’s September ordinary meeting, it was resolved that the new facility be named ‘Corowa Aquatic Centre’.
