Congratulations to the Active Moreland team and the City of Moreland for successfully reopening the Oak Park Sports and Aquatic Centre.

The $27.3 million redevelopment was entirely council-funded and features a 50 metre outdoor pool, two giant waterslides, a children's splash area and indoor gym.

The upgrade to the pool, originally built in 1966, also includes a 24/7 gym with a cycle studio and group fitness spaces, while a new sports pavilion has also been built on the site.

The biggest project ever funded by the Council, about 200,000 visitors are expected to visit the Centre every year.

With a ramp entrance into the 50 metre pool, accessible and family-friendly change rooms, and grassy outdoor spaces to relax on, the centre is truly a welcoming community space.

We look forward to seeing the positive impact a community asset of this calibre will have on the health and wellbeing of the people of Moreland.

At the official opening, Mayor Kavanagh said “(the pool) not only delivers opportunities for everyone to stay active, healthy and connected, but supports the next generation of swimmers to reach their potential.”
