Swimming Pools

There are two swimming pools located in the Parramatta City Local Government Area, Parramatta Swimming Centre and Granville Swimming Centre. 

Parramatta Program Pool Closure

The Program Pool will be closed for maintenance from Monday 14 April till Sunday 27 April, and will reopen on Monday 28 April. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time.

Free Access to Parramatta Pools

Seniors, people with a disability and their carers are entitled to free access to Council's swimming centres every Tuesday as part of a 12 month trial to improve physical activity levels and access to Council aquatic centres in the local area. Swimming is a perfect, low-impact exercise with a range of fitness benefits.

The initiative will also offer a one-off free family pass for two adults and two children or one adult and three children, which can be redeemed at either the Parramatta or Granville swimming centres at anytime throughout the year.

Free access is valid only for residents living within the Parramatta local government area. A valid NSW Seniors Card or Disability Pension Card must be presented at the time of entry. Proof of address must also be presented.

For more information contact the Parramatta War Memorial Swimming Pool on 9630 3669 or the Granville Swimming Centre on 9637 1593.
