Residents can now hit the waves with the opening of Fairfield City’s much anticipated $14.3 million Wave Pool at the iconic Aquatopia water park at Prairiewood Leisure Centre.

The splashtacular 55-metre wave pool brings an exciting taste of the beach to our doorstep with never seen before breakable surf waves and a beach party carnival atmosphere for Fairfield City and South Western Sydney families.

Adding to the many family fun recreational opportunities in Fairfield City, Council has also installed more cabanas and palm trees and umbrellas alongside the wave pool.

To keep the party flavour going, there is also a covered stage area for family outdoor events such as moonlight cinemas.

South Western Sydney families will no longer have to travel long distances in the heat of summer to the coast to search for waves. There’s always a perfect wave rolling in at Aquatopia!

All members of the family can learn to ride the waves on surf or boogie boards in a fun and safe beach environment, without the need to avoid rips or blue bottles!

Senator the Hon Concetta Fierravanti-Wells said the new wave pool was funded through the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal.

“The wave pool is an exciting addition to Aquatopia water park and part of a wider investment in the area, through the Western Parkland City Liveability Program.”

“The program funds projects which will enhance liveability and amenity for Fairfield and this project is a great example of how residents and visitors are benefitting from the City Deal, ” Senator Fierravanti-Wells said.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney and Minister for Trade and Investment Stuart Ayres said:

“This is another great example of the City Deal working to deliver a fantastic asset to the Fairfield community. When all three levels of government work together we can ensure the projects which people most want and need are the priority. I can’t wait to dive in to this spectacular facility.”

The wavepool is funded by Fairfield City Council and the Australian and NSW State governments through the Western Sydney City Deal Liveability Fund.
