A 2010 needs and feasibility study first identified the need for an expansion of the Aqua Jetty to service the forecast population.
In February 2018 we completed an updated Aqua Jetty Needs Assessment and Feasibility Study that investigated the capacity of the current facilities at the Aqua Jetty to meet the current and forecast community need. The study concluded that improvements and upgrades were required to both the aquatic and dry infrastructure to best cater for increased demand and ensure the Aqua Jetty continued to deliver as the City's flagship aquatic and leisure facility.
The Aqua Jetty currently includes a heated 50m outdoor pool, heated 25m indoor pool, leisure pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, fully-equipped health club, one multipurpose indoor court, outdoor courts, crèche and café.
The next stage of development will feature accessibility improvements including the development of a larger hydrotherapy pool, modernised change rooms, larger spaces for health and fitness programs including a larger gymnasium and group fitness rooms, and increased storage. It will also provide additional space for swimming programs at the facility.
