The need for a future expansion of the Aqua Jetty facility to service our forecast population was first identified through the completion of a 2010 needs and feasibility study.
In February 2018 the City 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 considered community and membership consultation and 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 Aqua Jetty Stage 2 project will feature accessibility improvements throughout the facility including the development of a new larger hydrotherapy pool as well as spa, sauna and steam room spaces, modernised change rooms, new and larger spaces for health and fitness programs including a larger gymnasium and two large group fitness rooms and a new spin class room. The development will also provide additional space for swimming programs at the facility which will include an expanded learn to swim pool, and updated water play areas including two water slides and a water/splash pad play area.
