PH2O an Iconic Sports & Leisure Venue

Vision of a Leisure Pool in PerthSports and Leisure is an essential part of any thriving community, town or city.  When the all-important mix of facilities, offer, services and engagement works in synergy the result is dynamic and vibrant provision that becomes the benchmark for national standards.

PH2O will encompass the already successful programme that Live Active delivers to the people and visitors of Perth City alongside new and exciting range of activities and sports. Picture an environment where all of us would train, play and work out alongside one another. Children learning to swim in the same building as our Olympic hopefuls are training; this is about inspiring people into becoming sports lovers, fitness fanatics and world class athletes.

Picture a swimming pool with enhanced family water and improved dedicated training lanes, more ice skating throughout the year, Olympic standard curling facilities, a state of the art gym, large spacious classes and Personal Training programmes for everyone.  Now add to this an outdoor facility that will deliver sky walks, a climbing wall and adventure play and you will begin to see our vision take shape.
