Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi, said the $55 million project has been one of the biggest and most rewarding ever undertaken by Council.

“It’s been incredible to see this project through from concept to completion, and I am so proud of what this Council has achieved for our community,” he said.

“I’m certain that the new Waves will become a favourite destination for residents and visitors and I can’t wait to present it to everyone at our Community Open Day.”

The swimming complex includes an outdoor FINA Standard Olympic sized 50m pool with 10 lanes, 25m outdoor training pool for swim school, lap swimming and squad training, indoor 25m and family leisure pool, 20m warm water program pool, sauna, spa pool and steam room.

The 1000sqm fitness centre is equipped with market-leading Technogym equipment including treadmills, elliptical trainers, recumbent bikes, upright bikes, steppers and striders, a multi-training structure, training zones with pin and plate loaded strength equipment and a weights area.

An on-site café, water play area with adjacent party room, outdoor fitness station and picnic tables with playground are all designed to ensure a great day out at the pool.

“I encourage residents to come to our Community Open Day and find out what the new Waves has to offer,” he said.

“This project is the result of many years of planning and hard work by many people, and I am delighted it is opening in time for the warmer months ahead.”
