Learn to swim, improve your front crawl, play in the water, soak in the hot tub—all kinds of activities take place at the Aquatic Centre. The ozonated water treatment process means chlorine levels are lower than standard pools. Leisure, fitness and rehabilitation programs are all available for you here.
Are you bringing an infant into the pool? Please ensure they are wearing a swim diaper with either a diaper cover or a tight-fitting swim suit on top.
The much-loved public art installation featured as part of the sunshades on the Aquatic Centre has been restored to its original glory.
AquaScapes was created by North Shore artist Sylvia Tait, and installed when the Aquatic Centre opened in 2004. The art was digitally printed on sunscreens, which are raised and lowered daily to control lighting inside the facility.
Over time, the wear and tear on this functional art caused it to deteriorate, so Council approved a budget for restoration in 2013. Using more durable material, and thanks to advances in large format digital printing, the restoration was a huge success. “It’s better than the first one!” said artist Sylvia Tait.
