Mayor of Cumberland City Council, Steve Christou has opened the doors to the newly renovated Wentworthville Memorial Swim Centre.
The Centre has been a construction site for several months as workers carried out an $12.2 million upgrade of the facility.
The Centre offers a new warm program pool, a leisure pool with beach entry and new change rooms. A lift has also been installed to allow people with disability to use the 50-metre pool.
'This Swim Centre was traditionally one of Western Sydney's most popular swimming spots prior to the revamp, and based on the Centre's new look and improved amenities, I expect it will be even more popular with residents and families in our local community,' Mayor Steve Christou said.
'When I first got elected as Mayor, one of my main priorities was the redevelopment of Wentworthville and this multimillion-dollar upgrade of Wentworthville pool goes a long way to fulfilling that commitment.'
The Centre also includes a new café that can be accessed from the main road and will be open to the general public.
Mayor Christou said Council is planning to modernise and redevelop other public pools in due course.
'Our residents deserve facilities that are modern. Now that the Wentworthville Memorial Swim Centre is complete, Council staff will be making budget assessments and looking at other opportunities to modernise pools across the LGA and ensure our residents have access to the best facilities and services possible.'
Belgravia Leisure has been engaged to oversee the day-to-day management of the Centre. They currently manage Council's Auburn Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre.
