ABOUT Beatty Park

Located just 3km north of the CBD, Beatty Park has been a much-loved part of Perth since 1962.

Owned and operated by the City of Vincent, Beatty Park Leisure Centre has a rich history in Perth. The centre was originally built for the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games and was heritage-listed in 2004. 

Today, Beatty Park is one of the largest leisure centres in Perth, with a huge range of health and fitness facilities for people of all ages and abilities to work out and feel well.


We've undergone a lot of change over the years!

  • 2021-2022

    Upgrades to the tune of $2.9 million were recently undertaken in the indoor pool area. The upgrades included new tiling featuring laser-engraved Aboriginal artwork, installation of a giant tipping bucket, water spray arches and water fountains, on-deck showers, changing cubicles and a new water treatment system. Two new water slides were opened in April 2022. Construction of accessible changerooms is still underway.
  • 2013

    A $17 million dollar redevelopment of the facility commenced in late 2011, after nearly 6 years of planning. This was completed in March 2013. This long awaited upgrade included a new two-level extension including a new entrance and top-floor gym, pool upgrades and more. Click here to read more about the 2013 upgrades.

    A total refurbishment took place in 1993, with the best of the old being combined with an exciting new facility. Beatty Park Leisure Centre re-opened in July 1994 and comprised a 50 metre 8-lane outdoor heated pool, a 30 metre heated dive pool, a 25 metre heated indoor lap pool with adjoining water playground, water slides,  freeform pool, sauna, spa and steam room, gymnasium, aerobics room, circuit gym, retail shop, cafe, crèche, office space and a series of activity rooms.
