Carnes Hill Aquatic and Recreational Centre

Liverpool is one of the fastest growing local government areas in new South Wales. Over the next 10 years, Liverpool will experience further transformative change in the areas of economic development, population growth, infrastructure development and the social make-up. It will see the construction of the new Western Sydney Airport, a new Liverpool CBD Civic Place, ongoing upgrades to Council’s parks and social infrastructure in established areas as well as the planning and establishment of new residential suburbs.

As part of the recently adopted Aquatic Leisure Centre Provision Implementation and Priority Plan , Liverpool City Council has demonstrated high demand for aquatic services in Carnes Hill. The plan focused on a diverse array of leisure opportunities such as aquatic, fitness, and wellness activities to improve the physical, mental, and social wellness of the community.

Where is the project taking place?

This project will be an addition to the existing Carnes Hill Community precinct which include the Michael Clarke Recreation Centre, a library, community centre, skate park, café, as well as a public plaza.
