After considerable engagement with the community, the design for stage one was finalised in August 2021 and the tender process for construction was completed in November 2021.
Stage one work commenced in March 2022 and is expected to continue through to the middle of 2023, ahead of re-opneing of the pool by Summer 2023. The entire site, including the pool, will be inaccessible for the duration of the construction period.
The $9.5 million recovered from the sale of CN's Fred Ash building is helping fund the Newcastle Ocean Baths Stage One upgrade along with $3 million in funding from the NSW Government’s Public Spaces Legacy Program.
