Galston Aquatic & Leisure Centre

UPDATE – July 2023

Galston Aquatic & Leisure Centre (GALC) remains closed to the public for facility upgrades and will reopen when these are complete.

Council is pleased to confirm our building contractors are making great progress at Galston and have completed the indoor amenities which gives the centre the fresh new look it needed.

The roof is due to be installed and finalised mid-July which will allow the contractors to commence the final internal components of the project. Pending weather delays, the centre remains on track to be handed over to Council mid-October/November as we head into the warmer months.

There have been delays to the reopening of the facility including unforeseen stoppages from rain, labour shortages and extensive delays on the delivery of building materials due to supply issues related to COVID-19. In addition, the project team is committing to safety requirements in adhering to the strict Work Health and Safety Act 2011(NSW) to ensure we deliver a safety-first working environment for both contractors and Council staff.

Despite these delays, we are excited to reopen this popular community facility later this year in time for summer.

UPDATE – March 2023

Galston Aquatic & Leisure Centre (GALC) remains closed to the public for facility upgrades and will not reopen until these are complete.

The builder completing the GALC refurbishment has experienced some challenges which has unfortunately delayed the reopening of the facility, until mid-2023. There have been unforeseen stoppages from rain, labour shortages and extensive delays on the delivery of building materials due to COVID-19. In addition, the project team is required to adhere to the strict Work Health and Safety Act 2011(NSW) to ensure we deliver a safety-first working environment for both contractors and Council staff.

You may be assured that essential internal works are being completed which, due to scaffolding and external walls, aren’t visible from the road. Pending clear weather, installation of the main roof over the 25-metre pool is currently planned for March 2023. This should allow work inside the building to progress irrespective of the weather.

Please direct all enquiries to GALCenquiries@hornsby.nsw.gov.au and a team member will get back to you as soon as possible.
