Hurstville City Council has called for a Construction Tender for expansion of the existing Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre.

The Hurstville Aquatic Leisure was first opened to the public on Saturday, 2nd December 1995 with an official opening on Saturday, 9th by the then Mayor Peter Olah JP. The all-weather centre boasted an eight-lane 25m lap pool, leisure pool, large outdoor tropical garden area, a café, fitness studio, spa and sauna area, aerobics and creche facilities.

The Centre has been one of the most successful facilities provided by the Council for the community. By 2000, there were over 10,000 visitors attending the Centre each week. Following surveys and community consultation about the leisure requirements of the community, the $9.28m expansion of the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre commenced.

The refurbishment of the Centre was completed in February 2004. Today the Centre has a greatly expanded aerobics/function area, new gymnasium, program and toddlers' pools, as well as a multipurpose sports hall.

The newly built indoor sports stadium at the Aquatic Centre was officially named the ‘Johnny Warren' Indoor Sports Centre on Friday 20 February 2004.

Soccer player Johnny Warren represented St George on 297 occasions from 1963 to 1974, winning three championships along the way. He was player coach on one occasion and non playing coach on another. He represented Australia from 1965 to 1974 playing 62 matches, including 44 full internationals and captaining the national team on many occasions. He was awarded the title of Member of the British Empire in 1973, the Order of Australia Medal in 2003 and inducted into the Australian Sports Hall of Fame in 1988.

The stadium is able to stage three basketball games at the one time. It is a state-of-the-art facility that will play host to many sports including karate, kung-fu, indoor soccer, aerobics, badminton, netball, indoor touch, gymnastics and baton twirling. The multi-purpose stadium can also be used for large community events.

The aquatic centre has  a 25 metre 8-lane pool, a Leisure pool  ideal for family fun & recreation, a Warm water program pool ideal for learn to swim class & rehabilitation programmes and a Sauna, Steam room and Spa.
