SWELL logo

Get ready Palmerston. There’s a new water and lifestyle precinct coming to town…

It’ll be free and packed with things to do.
It’s a place you can splash, slide, swim outside,
Stretch, bend, fully extend,
Meet, eat, escape the heat,
Feel fit, find fun, free for everyone.

What is SWELL?

The proposed SWELL (Swimming, Wellness, Events, Leisure, Lifestyle) master plan is part of Council’s strategic vision to provide Palmerston residents with a contemporary and family friendly, water and lifestyle precinct.

The proposed upgrades will include a purpose built learn to swim and wellness program pool and family-friendly activity features for all ages and abilities, as well as an adventure play zone unlike any others in the Top End.

Community consultation was open from Wednesday 16 September to Wednesday 28 October 2020.

The tender for construction and redevelopment is now closed as of 21 February 2022. Council is now conducting a tender review process. For more information click here.
