Located on Joynton Avenue, opposite the former South Sydney Hospital, the aquatic centre and park will form part of the commercial, retail and cultural heart of the $8 billion greater Green Square redevelopment on the city’s southern fringe, and will house a 50-metre outdoor pool, a 25-metre indoor pool, a leisure pool, a hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium.
