The Logan North Aquatic Centre has been under redevelopment construction since the end of June last year with plans to have it operating again at full capacity later this year.

The works have included the replacement of the over 30-year-old 50-metre outdoor pool, associated pipework, plant, and plant room.

The benefits of this work will include –

  • Additional lanes, increasing pool capacity for leisure, squad training, school carnivals, and regional competition
  • Improved water quality controls
  • New energy-efficient pumps and filtration will lower power costs
  • Reduced water consumption costs
  • Removal of obsolete pipework will reduce the risk of future issues
  • Reduced pool closures for maintenance and repairs

Logan City Council allocated $9 million in the 2020 budget for the planning and associated works.

Mayor Darren Power today visited the site and said a great morning visiting the Logan North Pool to view the progress on renewing one of the City’s most loved and well utilised community assets.

“I can’t wait for the community to enjoy this fantastic facility for many years to come and make plenty of memories with family and friends.

“Not only is the pool new and improved, so is its name, the Jodie Henry Pool.

“Jodie was one of city’s most successful homegrown swimming stars, winning three gold medals in at the Athens Olympics (100m freestyle, 4x100m freestyle relay and 4x100m medley relay).

“The name will change following the official opening of the pool later this year just in time for summer.”

This upgrade follows on from the 2018 Beenleigh Aquatic Centre in Alamein St $5.5 million upgrade, and the planned further $15 million upgrade to the Beenleigh pool, and the closure of the Eagleby Aquatic Centre two months ago.
