💦 Construction of City of Parramatta’s new $88.6 million state-of the-art aquatic centre is going swimmingly, with the centre’s four pools now filled with more than 2.5 million litres of water.

In case you’ve missed hearing about Parramatta’s new pool…. it’s located within Parramatta Park, on the doorstep of the CBD, and has four pools – a 10-lane, 50m outdoor pool; 25m indoor pool; indoor learn-to-swim pool – plus an indoor water playground, spa, steam and sauna facilities, cafĂ©, fitness centre, multipurpose community rooms and onsite parking.

The PAC also boasts a sustainable design including 358 rooftop solar panels, generating around 273 megawatts per hour in energy savings annually; automated, natural ventilation in the fitness centre instead of air-conditioning; three rain gardens; rain tank for onsite irrigation; skylights which filter harmful UV, maintains temperature and absorbs sounds; LED lights and sustainably harvested blackbutt timber.

Opening in spring this year, recruitment is now underway for more than 150 jobs across swim, gym and operational roles.

Note: the project is being co-funded by Council and the NSW Government, which is investing $38.5 million from the Restart NSW Fund.
