Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre

Hornsby Aquatic & Leisure Centre (HALC), Galston Aquatic & Leisure Centre (GALC) and The Brickpit are open.

Essential roof works

From 1 March, contractors have been onsite completing works on the vapor barrier/guttering of the HALC. This has not impacted on operations.

A crane was delivered on Sunday 11 April at the HALC for the commencement of the full roof works. The roof sheet replacement works are essential to reduce the condensation levels in the pool hall. Due to the nature and location of these works, it’s too weather dependent to provide an exact completion date at this stage.

Stage 1 of the works is ahead of schedule and stage 2 of the works will begin from 10am Thursday 15 April.

During stage 2, the following changes will be in place:

  • The leisure pool, male change rooms and the multi-purpose room will be closed to the public
  • One family changeroom will be available
  • The female changerooms will be split into male and female facilities, separated by a locked door
  • The 25m pool will reopen for public swimming from 1pm Thursday 15 April (until the end of school holidays)

From Monday 19 April, the 25m pool will return to normal Learn to Swim (LTS) Term 2 lap swimming availability.
