New South Wales
The new Ashfield Aquatic Centre replaces the much loved Ashfield Pool to become one of the most important Community Recreation facilities serving Sydney’s Inner West. The Centre includes 6 waterbodies, grandstands, cafe, community areas, creche, and a fitness centre. It has been designed as a community recreation centre for all ages and demographics.
The new centre retains two older pools which are located under the striking curved roof of the pool hall. The facility includes an adjustable depth program pool that can be raised from waterpolo depth to a shallow learn-to-swim pool in minutes.
The centre provides much improved facilities which are focussed on their community use for recreational swimming, schools, toddlers, learn to swim, well as the flexible programmable pool for aquatic sports. The building gives a strong presence to the street where it creates an important meeting point which is well connected to parking and transport.
