The Canterbury Leisure & Aquatic Centre redevelopment is planned to commence in the very near future. Council is committed to this project and looks forward to delivering your brand new state of the art Centre in later 2024/early 2025!

We are currently in the final stages of the tender process. As such, the original closure date of Tuesday 31 January has been delayed and we will announce the revised closure date as soon as possible.

Access to the pool and the gym/cardio spaces will continue until further notice, however please note that our Swim School and Group Fitness programs will not resume at the Centre.

Membership payments will continue as normal until further notice and you can also use your membership at our Birrong, Max Parker and Roselands Leisure and Aquatic Centres. If you do not wish to continue your membership until we close the doors, please see one of our friendly staff on site who will assist you with your cancellation.

Should you have any questions in relation to the project, please contact Council's Manager Leisure & Aquatic Services on

The redevelopment of Canterbury Leisure & Aquatic Centre into a state of the art facility is a once in a generation opportunity for our community.

The final day of operation at Canterbury Leisure and Aquatic Centre will be Tuesday 31 January 2023 and your new centre should open in late 2024/early 2025. During that time, you can use your membership at Birrong, Max Parker and Roselands Leisure & Aquatic Centres .

We are planning information sessions for you later this year. Until then, feel free to ask any of our Customer Service Officers or Leadership Team if you have questions about your membership and our programs. 

For more specific information on the project, please contact Council's Manager Leisure & Aquatic Services on 9707 9508.

The redevelopment is part of the Leisure and Aquatic Centre’s Strategic Plan, which was adopted in August 2019. The Plan reviewed the condition of all our Aquatic Centres to make recommendations for priority upgrades. As part of that, Canterbury Leisure and Aquatic Centre was identified as a priority. 

We conducted an in-depth site analysis, consulted with operational staff and created this concept design. 

Plans for the new Centre include:

• 50m outdoor pool

• 25m indoor pool

• Indoor warm water therapy pool

• Sauna

• Gym

• Multipurpose/Group Fitness rooms

• On site Café

• Zero-depth children’s water and nature play

• Landscaping

• Toilets

• Family change rooms

• Changing places facility

• Allied health consulting rooms

• Spectator seating

• Administration offices
