Casino Memorial Swimming Pool

Casino Memorial Swimming Pool

The Casino Memorial Olympic Pool Upgrade has been a signature project for Council over the past four years. The Masterplan was completed and adopted by Council in February 2021 with a vision of redeveloping the Casino Pool into a state-of-the-art community facility, to be undertaken in three stages. Council has devoted extensive effort and resources to the completion of Stage One and worked closely with contractor Momentum Built Pty Ltd to achieve this major milestone for the Richmond Valley community.  

Stage One is valued at $6.7 million, which was funded by the combined support of the Australian Government and Richmond Valley Council. The Australian Government contributed $3.74 million from its Female Facilities and Water Safety Stream Program, with Richmond Valley Council providing the remaining $2.96 million. 


Stage One works were carried out by Momentum Built Pty Ltd and include: 

  • Construction of a new concrete and tiled, eight-lane 50m heated pool with an all-ability access ramp and stairs. 
  • Refurbishment of the plant room and construction of new filtration infrastructure for the 50m pool.  
  • Construction of a new concrete and tiled, multi-purpose toddler splash pool. 
  • Construction of a new plant room and filtration infrastructure for the splash pool. 
  • Shade structures at each end of the 50m pool and over the toddlers’ pool. 
  • Refurbishment of the existing water slide. 
  • A new electrical switch room and the installation of an electrical substation suitable for the full redevelopment of the swimming centre including provisions for the future development of stages two and three. 
  • New floodlighting. 
  • Refurbishment of the shower facilities and change rooms complying with Workplace Health and Safety and mobility access standards, including non-slip flooring, new showers and plumbing fixtures.  


The Stage One work was officially opened on Saturday, 23 September 2023, by Mayor Robert Mustow and Karen Hogan, representing Kevin Hogan MP. A free family fun day was held to mark the official opening, with hundreds of locals keen to enjoy the activities.  

Council continues to seek funding for Stage Two and Three works, which will include: 

  • A new steel-framed pool hall incorporates a 25-meter heated multi-purpose pool, family change room, adult change room, and plant room. 
  • Refurbishment of the facility entrance, control area, kiosk, administration, first aid and staff facilities. 
  • Refurbishment of the gymnasium, including the creation of a swim squad room. 
  • A new swimming club building and contractor storage area. 
  • Firefighting infrastructure. 
  • Formalised carparking. 
  • 12m high twin flume water slide.
