Parramatta’s new and much-needed $88.6 million Aquatic Centre has finally opened its doors to the public. Over 2.5 million litres of water has been pumped into the aquatic centre’s four pools: a 50-metre outdoor pool, a 25-metre indoor pool, an indoor learn-to-swim pool and an indoor water playground.
Birrong Swimming Centre is a popular swimming Centre in Sydney, Australia. In the centre there are two pools, a 50 m outdoor pool and a 25 m indoor pool, completely renovated in 2007 using RenovAction technology. The 50 m outdoor reinforced concrete tiled pool had been unusable for a long period of time.
The general pool condition included leaking pipes and and failed water stop-joints, uneven flow into the overflow channel and damaged lighting system.
A major renovation was required. Myrtha Pools RenovAction technology was selected for the complete refurbishment of the old failed concrete pool. A combination of Myrtha Technology and RenovAction was used. The width of the pool was reduced which allowed for a disabled ramp creating a blind areaa long the side walls. Furthermore, this solution allowed for easy installation of the side wall Strahlenturbulenz inlets circulation system and lighting systems.
The swimming pool is a 50x21x3 m with ceramic overflow gutter on long sides and ceramic competition headwalls on short sides, 5 recessed step treads, disabled ramp and mosaic marking lines on the floor.
Virgin Active opened a fitness centre in Sydney’s central business district at the redeveloped 420 George Street/Mid City Retail centre complex.
Virgin Active occupies some 4500 square metres across two floors featuring a 25-metre swimming pool, relaxation spa and sauna, dedicated mind/body studios, internet cafe, a rock-climbing wall and sleep pods for those seeking a daytime power nap.
Recently upgraded with an eye on the environment, this historical park of Victorian origins now houses a modern Myrtha swimming pool.
The former swimming pool, worn out by time, was removed from the center of the park, to give the landscape a fresher look. The new swimming pool, a 9 lanes, 50 mt long blue gem, now offers a wide range of programs and classes for learning and workouts ; the pool is surrounded by several facilities such as a Cafe, a spray-park for the joy of children, spacious changing rooms with hot showers and a wooden three-tiers grandstand shaded by rows of yellow umbrellas; people can sit there and enjoy a snack while watching swimmers in the pool water. The adjacent lush green slope is also equipped with umbrellas to provide proper shelter from the heat.
Built on a carefully selected greenfield site, the centre includes a 25m heated pool, a 50m unheated Olympic standard pool, and a covered kids’ ‘splash pad’ play area with a range of water features, as well as associated amenities and administration facilities.
The custom-designed wave pool has two custom-built fans and a three-way valve system to increase the height of the surfable waves. Every day is a beach day at the new outdoor wave pool that also features a peninsula so riders can surf or boogie board on a variety of waves every three seconds – cool!
It is a combined enclosed and outdoor pool complex with an outdoor 50m olympic pool solar heated, enclosed 25m pool heated to 29.5 degrees and zero depth toddler splash pad with soft fall base.
The new 50m pool and facilities at Griffith Regional Aquatic Leisure Centre was finalised and opened on 14 February 2021.
The project, part of the $26.5M Sports Precinct funded by Building Better Regions Fund (Australian Government), Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund (NSW Government), and Griffith City Council, features the construction of a 50m pool, new change rooms and toilets, accessibility ramp into the pool, and a new pump room to accommodate the needs of the new infrastructure.
The transformation of the CentrePoint facility from tired and substandard to the bright, modern, multi-functional, community hub it has become, is everything town planners had hoped for when it first became clear the old facility needed a facelift. Three new pools, built for sport, recreation, teaching, fitness, and fun are now available to more people in more ways than ever.
