Redevelopment of North Sydney Olympic Pool
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Work has now kicked off for the crucial reconstruction of North Sydney Olympic Pool. The NSW Government is contributing $5 million to the revamp of this iconic pool through the Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund. This Fund focuses on enabling communities to participate in sport at all levels and the pool upgrade will improve and expand the range of recreational activities. While this is a significant upgrade, the pool's heritage features such as the Art Deco arches will be preserved. North Sydney Olympic Pool is treasured by locals and visitors alike. The pool's historic and iconic position by Sydney Harbour is a major drawcard for tourism. I thank the Hon. Geoff Lee MP, Acting Minister for Sport, Multiculturalism, Seniors and Veterans, for his support for this important asset for people across NSW and beyond. Our Government has contributed this funding to ensure a modern fitness and leisure centre can be enjoyed by many generations to come while respecting this iconic and historic destination.
