Exciting things are happening at Broadmeadows Aquatic and Leisure Centre!

Hume City Council is investing over $2.49m in upgrades and works to the centre, which will take place between April - September 2019.

View the list of rolling-updates on the project here.

The much-loved (and visited) facility is now approaching 40 years since opening and remains a highly popular place for locals to get active and socialise. Due to the building’s age and high-usage rates, essential works are now required on the oldest parts of the centre. The works, will ensure the community can continue enjoying the centre for years to come. They include:

  • replacement/repair of the 25-metre pool hall roof 
  • changeroom upgrades
  • new steam room
  • new on-deck showers
  • new lockers that can be accessed by membership card or band
  • energy efficiency upgrades (double glazed windows, new LED lighting, new pool-plant equipment and upgrades to the heating and air control unit).
  • resurfacing of the pool concourse with anti-slip material
  • removal of the mezzanine balcony
  • replacement of the switchboard
  • installation of entry gates to aquatics area. 
The 25-metre pool area and attached changerooms will be unavailable during the works. This includes the 25-metre pool, warm-water pool, leisure pool, sauna, spa and family changerooms. There will also be reduced space in the gym area.
 
The 50-metre pool and attached changerooms, group fitness rooms, stadium, centre-entry and part of the gym will remain open during the works. Temporary dry-changerooms will be installed and can be used in addition to the changerooms in the 50-metre pool area. 

We acknowledge these works will cause some inconvenience, and we thank you for your patience while we make upgrades to the oldest part of our centre.
