Botany Aquatic Centre

Botany Aquatic Centre is a firm family favourite. The sad thing is that the gigantic water slides are no longer there, although we believe there are plans for renovations and, hopefully, new water slides.

This pool is a great attraction for families with its shade, the playground by the pool and the barbecue and picnic area surrounded by lawns.

Sadly, the Botany Big Splash water slides were taken down in 2018. 

There are sometimes movies shown at the pool, and other events. Check the Facebook page for the latest info.
