We’re excited to be planning a new, high quality aquatic and leisure centre to help support the health and wellbeing of our community.

The creation of a new aquatic and leisure centre which is contemporary, accessible for all, and meets current standards is a significant project and investment for Council.

The project is expected to take around five years to complete.

In April 2021 Council endorsed the Aquatic Facility Plan to guide future aquatic development in Kingston, with the priority to commission a new district level aquatic facility to the central/south of Kingston.

New Centre to be built in Mordialloc

We are thrilled to announce that our new aquatic and leisure centre will be built adjacent to Jack Grut Reserve on Governor Road in Mordialloc.

This milestone announcement comes after an extensive site investigation program that commenced with over 180 potential locations across the central and southern areas of Kingston.

On the back of a thorough independent assessment of the shortlisted sites and valuable feedback from our community, we are now moving forward with finalising the land purchase and designing a great new facility for the community.

This once-in-a-generation project represents a major investment in the future health and wellbeing of the community and we are focused on developing a facility that is more sustainable, accessible and environmentally sensitive than ever before.


Help shape your new aquatic and leisure centre

Hearing the opinions of the broader community plays a vital role in the design process, and we thank all of you who contributed to our most recent consultation which closed on the 13 June 2022.

Your valuable feedback will help shape your new aquatic and leisure centre, and we are currently collating all of the feedback received, which will be presented to Council at a future date.


Want to join our Community Reference Group?

We’re setting up a Community Reference Group (see the Terms of Reference in the Phase 3 Documents) to help guide the project and play a key role in representing different community needs and views during this important planning phase.

Community Reference Groups (CRG) bring together people from all walks of life, to represent the entire community. The group will meet quarterly to discuss facility design and functionality, project opportunities and issues, and share local insights and perspectives that will help Council deliver a great outcome.

Independent specialist Deliberately Engaging will support Council in developing a CRG that represents the different ages, experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds of our community.

Building a pool is a large and complex project, and the CRG is anticipated to run for at least two years. We appreciate that this is a long journey, and a significant commitment from the community, therefore all CRG members will receive $50 per meeting as a thank you.

If you are unsure about what to expect from the group, then we encourage you to join us for our online information session (details below), alternatively, if you are ready to ‘make a splash’ for Kingston’s new aquatic and leisure centre, then register your interest to join the Community Reference Group by Wednesday 6 July.

Online Community Information Session

28 June 2022 from 5.30 - 6.30pm

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The City of Kingston is conducting a study regarding the new district level aquatic and leisure centre at Governor Road in Mordialloc.

    To assist us with the design of this facility we would like to understand how you might use the centre, things that might encourage you to use the centre and how the centre should look and feel.

    The survey should only take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
