The $31 million state-of-the-art water recreation space is set to revitalise the heart of Campbelltown City and become a landmark facility for Sydney.

It is funded under the Western Sydney City Deals Liveability Fund and will provide a recreation space for people to enjoy. The project includes a range of recreational water play facilities, landscaped areas, parklands and amenities over the four hectare site, including a stream, swimming lagoon and a zero-depth play area.

The landscape features of the design are based on the local Dharawal National Park and Georges River to reflect the importance of our local environment and Aboriginal culture.

On Tuesday 8 December 2020, Council resolved to invest an additional $12.25 million to include state-of-the-art pool operating systems as well as bring forward landscaping and cultural elements that will increase the appeal and functionality of the unique regional parkland. The funding has been made available from Council's unrestricted reserves and will be repaid over a six year period. Including the previous $18.75 million, there is now a total value of $31 million for this project.

We anticipate completion of the project by June 2022.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback in our Billabong Parklands project survey. These ideas will be used to develop the final design which we will share with you early 2020.
