Beatty Park Leisure Centre is located 3 km north of Perth CBD and was originally built in 1962, a $17 million dollar major redevelopment was completed in March 2013.
This was our first visit to Beatty Park, we decided to visit after our original plans fell through due to bad weather – thank you weather gods! We had the best time and we will definitely be regulars from now on.
As you enter there is a swim shop on the left where you can purchase bathers, goggles, floaties, thongs and other swimming related items.
Casual entry prices are very reasonable;
Adult (16+) $7.00
Child (5-15) $5.00
Child (3-4) $2.00
Child (0-2) FREE
Inside there is a large heated leisure pool specifically designed for children and families, the depth of the water varies from 0.0m to 0.9m. The beach type entry makes entering and exiting the water easy. At the edge of the entrance is waterspouts – I couldn’t keep my 10 month away.
A few steps into the water you will find a frog slide, it is very popular with young kids.
There are also two smaller slides nearby, great for smaller children who need more assistance.
In the same area is a colourful snake that strays out water, and 6 netball hoops in the pool – bring a ball and shoot some hoops.
Deeper in the leisure pool kids can swim over to the waterfall.
For the older kids, there are two indoor slides, my older children and their friends enjoyed racing each other down – I’m told the inside slide is the fastest ;). Children must be able to slide unassisted, the slide pool water is 1.05m deep if your child is unable to stand in the water a parent must be in the pool to assist them.
There is also an 25m heated lap pool with a depth of 0.9m to 1.2m, kids are able to play in the leisure lane, the swimming lanes are reserved for swimmers only.
There is a spa/sauna/steam room for swimmers 16 years and older, usage requires an additional fee.
Outside there are another 3 pools, a 50m x 10 lane heated pool with a depth from 1.2m to 1.8m.
30m heated pool with a depth of 1.8m to 2.0m.
12m x 12m ‘Learn to Swim’ heated pool with a depth of 0.9m to 1.2m.
In addition to the pools, there is a lovely grassed area with shade sails.
Beatty Park has been designed with universal access in mind to cater for the elderly, parents with prams and for people with disabilities. Patrons can access all areas of the Centre via ramps, with the exception of the upper grandstand. The indoor pools can be easily accessed via the beach entry. The outdoor pools can be accessed via stairs, ramp and with handrails, there is also a hydraulic hoist and water wheelchair available to those who require additional assistance into the water.
The Beatty Park Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy a light meal or drink after a swim.
Other facilities at Beatty Park Leisure Centre include a creche, gym, lockers, family change rooms, and clubrooms.
