The Need

The Burwood Local Government Area is experiencing substantial growth and change which will continue into the future. The growth in high density living will results in increased demand for limited community facilities in an already highly populated area, resulting in greater needs for additional facilities and public spaces.

Council is committed to meeting the challenge of providing high quality services and facilities to meet community needs. This requires a significant investment in the EAC, already a much-loved and extensively used community facility.

Community Benefits

EAC Stage 2 will provide a new pool dedicated to teaching children and adults to learn to swim that will generate increased revenue to offset the costs of running the EAC and free up much needed space in the exiting 25 metre pool.

EAC Master Plan Stage 2 Project - New Programs Pool

The construction of the new pool will use the latest in pool design and technology to provide an aesthetically pleasing environment with highly efficient operations. This includes a new pool hall enclosure with a warm water program pool, new amenities, concourse floor heating system and latest disinfection system.

It is anticipated that this new pool will significantly increase the capacity of the EAC to deliver community-based swimming well-being programs and Council's ability to meet the aquatic needs of the growing community. There will be increased capacity for recreational swimming, learn to swim classes, an expanded squad program and other essential community aquatic programs. Importantly, the new pool will alleviate overcrowding in the existing indoor 25 metre pool, especially in the cooler months when the outdoor 50 metre pool is closed.

By creating additional program space, Burwood Council will enhance essential swimming skills and swimming training facilities for the diverse and growing population in our area. Council will also facilitate the growth of local clubs who use the facility, including the Enfield Lifesaving Club and Enfield Swim Club.
