Summer might be when you think about swimming but this awesome indoor pool makes swimming fun all year round! Splasher’s Playground, located inside Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre is a heated indoor water playground with great facilities and lots of play zones for kids and families to enjoy. Check out our recent reels about it here and here.


In early 2021, the area was closed for about 12 months for renovations – the NSW government allocated $16m for capital works which was spent on:
?‍♀️ Training Pool floor replacement
? Concrete integrity repairs to all pools
? Tile upgrades for the Leisure and Training Pool, including pool concourse areas
? Leisure side toilet refurbishments at Aquatic Centre
? Cladding repairs around the plant room
❄️ Replacing major elements of the heating, ventilation and cooling systems
☀️ Solar electricity system and panel installation on the roof of the Aquatic Centre
