The Logan North Aquatic Centre is now Logan’s premier swimming facility with a 50-metre heated outdoor fitness pool and a 25-metre heated indoor pool, perfect for learn-to-swim and aqua fitness classes.

After being closed for refurbishment for 18 months, the first stage upgrade to the facility, delivered the pool upgrades and new energy efficient pumps and filtration.

Project Stage 1

Renamed the Jodie Henry Pool for the three-time Olympic gold medallist and former Springwood resident, the upgraded Olympic sized pool recognises Ms Henry’s contribution to swimming, winning three gold medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics and being the first Australian since Dawn Fraser in 1964 to win the individual 100m freestyle at an Olympics.

Project Stage 2

The second stage of the aquatic centre upgrades, the construction of the 32m long splashpark was undertaken by Box & Co, with aquatic element design by Atlantis Liquid Dynamics and hydraulic design by Aquatic One.

Concept Design

Co-located alongside the 50m outdoor heated pool, the features of the splashpark are immediately visible upon entry to the facility, with a towering Jellyfish and Sea Horses rising above the brightly coloured flooring.

All-abilities access is available and encouraged throughout the splashpark, and the use of Lifefloor surfacing provides soft and non-slip travel across the ground plane.

Unique Features

For younger or less mobile children, there are water spheres and engaging ground sprays at lower and mid-levels, with a quiet zone away from the active play experiences.  For older children, there are Fish Ball Blaster cannons and a huge Dipper tipping bucket in the centre of the splashpad, which releases a deluge of water without warning, spilling over the curved acrylic deflector plate and onto the waiting kids below.

A huge hit for locals and inclusive for all, this newly upgraded community hub also features a Changing Places facility, allowing individuals with high support needs to take part in all elements of community life with comfort and dignity.  There are also extensive seating options and shaded BBQ areas to allow people to stay all day.  Finally, the entire splashpark is shaded for long term user comfort and safety.

An Epic Opening

The upgraded facility was proudly opened by former Logan Mayor Darren Power and Cr Mindy Russell in December 2023, with a huge response from locals and a surprise attendance from Santa himself!

When I became a Councillor nearly four years ago, my dream was to bring our city more spaces like this, which would encourage, imaginative play for children, friendships developed between community members and even more pride here in Logan, the city I grew up in, and we all call home.

This entire precinct is like a giant community centre to me, which is why I love it so much.

As families gather around the splash pad, it will achieve those goals and so much more, this summer and many more into the future.
