Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre – creating a 10-year plan

Developing a 10-year shared vision between Council and the community for upgrading Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre.

Background

The Aquatic Centre is located in Leichhardt Park within the suburb of Lilyfield. A number of other significant recreational facilities can be found in the park including Leichhardt Oval, the Leichhardt Rowing Club and the Iron Cove Bay Run.

The Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre (LPAC) was opened in the 1960s and the first master plan was adopted in 2005 by the Former Leichhardt Council.

What’s happening now?

Council is updating the master plan to reflect the changing needs of the community and the outcomes of the recent Recreational Needs Study.

Along with the Aquatic Centre, the plan will consider:

  • the adjacent car park
  • all connecting footpaths
  • the Mary Street entrance
  • connections to the harbour foreshore, the Bay Run and Leichhardt Park.

What happens next?

Council will develop a draft master plan using the community’s feedback. The draft plan is expected to be publicly exhibited in June 2018 and the community will be invited to provide further feedback. Find out more about the process
