Our pools

With a specialised ramp entry for ease of access and provision for over 200 seats in the accompanying stand, or lap pool will be ideal for training, exercise classes, small carnivals, events and recreation swimming.

Featuring a unique kiddies slide and aerated beach geysers, 'Kidzone' will keep them laughing all day and within an arm's reach too! With variable distances, our geysers will make for some great laughs amidst all the splashes.

Still looking for a challenge? Then try disappearing into our spray bollards. 4 enormous bollards stand tall in the pool to make sure everyone gets wet. Try sitting on the step with relaxing drops around you or why not have a game and dodge the spray; either way, this eye-catching feature will be a favourite!

Slide on down

Now for the fun! Blacktown's only indoor Waterslide offers over 10 metres of slide fun and frolics. Made of specialised fibreglass reinforced plastic in a translucent blue colouring and powered by a variable flow rate, our slide is designed to take you down in a spiral frenzy splashing into a 1.2 m deep landing pool.

Program pool
