Sixty Years

Established in 1962, we were purpose-built as the major aquatic venue for the VIIth British Empire and Commonwealth Games. Three days after the Games wrapped up, "Beatty Park Pool" opened to the the public... and the rest is history!

We even moonlighted as Perth's go-to concert venue in the late 60s and 70s, hosting the likes of Santana, Deep Purple, The Bee Gees and more.

In 1994, Beatty Park officially became a leisure centre, adding a gym and group fitness into the mix.

Today, we're one of Perth's largest leisure centres, celebrating 60 years of swimming and staying active.
