Sunbury welcomes new Warm Water Pool

The new $4 million warm water pool at Sunbury Aquatic and Leisure Centre was officially launched today by Hume City Council Mayor, Cr Geoff Porter and Member for Sunbury, Josh Bull MP, who were joined by representatives from Sunbury Community Health Centre.

It is anticipated that the pool will open to the public from Wednesday 24 October, please check our website to confirm opening and hours of operation.

Hume Mayor Geoff Porter said the new warm water pool is a great example of what can be achieved for the local community when multiple levels of government work together.

 “I’d like to thank the Victorian Government and Josh Bull MP for contributing $2 million to this $4million the project, that additional funding has helped us build the facility sooner to benefit the Sunbury community now and well into the future,” Cr Porter said.

“The new pool features an access ramp and a changing places toilet, making the pool accessible and easy to use for all members of our community.

“Important rehabilitation services can now be provided locally and not redirected to other locations – this will make a huge difference to the day-to-day lives of people needing to use the warm water pool for rehabilitation purposes. 

“The new facility also creates an opportunity for local sporting clubs to use the pool for recovery sessions and increases capacity of the Sunbury Aquatic and Leisure Centre to provide Learn to Swim and other aquatic classes.

“I encourage everyone to come and enjoy the newly upgraded leisure centre and all the facilities now on offer to our community.”

Studies have shown that exercising in warm water has the potential to assist people of all ages by:

  • improving their balance without the fear of falling
  • relieving pain and stiffness
  • increasing leg and arm strength to remain active; and
  • supporting rehabilitation from various surgeries or injuries.

Initial excavation of the Sunbury Warm Water pool site took place in October 2017. This was followed by preparation of the pool floor, installation of the underwater hydraulics, pouring of the pool base and tiling. The construction of the steel framed building including fit out took place during 2018 and most recently the pool was filled with water and the pool was prepared for use.
