Oran Park will have a posh new leisure centre by 2024 – weather permitting!

The first sod was turned this morning and construction will soon commence on the $63.3 million project.

Mayor of Camden, Therese Fedeli, was joined by Councillors Usha Dommaraju and Cindy Cagney as well as Tony and Mark Perich from Greenfields Development Company to mark the commencement of the early works.

Mayor Therese Fedeli said the project was an exciting addition to the Oran Park Civic Precinct which already includes Council’s Administration Building and the Oran Park Library.

“Excitingly, it will include the local government area’s first 50 metre indoor swimming pool,” Cr Fedeli said.

Designed by Warren and Mahoney Architects, the Oran Park Leisure Centre will be a multipurpose community facility including the 50-metre indoor swimming pool, leisure and learn-to-swim pool, spa and sauna, indoor basketball courts, gymnasium, café, creche and car parking.

“The Centre will be a fantastic community facility offering a place for social gathering featuring aquatic, indoor sports, and health and fitness areas,”

The best thing is it’s not only in the centre of Oran Park Town, but in the heart of the Camden area as a whole.

Cr Fedeli said that Council is committed to delivering state of the art sporting facilities to the residents of the Camden area. This new Leisure Centre will add to a growing list of premium facilities including Narellan Sports Hub, Fergusons Land Cricket Facility, Nott Oval football field and the Kirkham BMX Facility.

“Not only is it great to have these facilities right here in our own backyard for our residents to enjoy, but it also gives us the opportunity to host state, national and international level competitions which also benefits our local small businesses,” Cr Fedeli said.
