We are working with Paddle Australia and other stakeholders to promote the revitalisation of Penrith Whitewater Stadium and the surrounding parklands. It’s 2020 – which means it’s 20 years since the 2000 Sydney Olympics. This is the perfect time for a reno! Thanks to the delivery of the first part of a $2.3M grant from the Australian Government, the project is taking good shape. We’ve got the first design impressions for the high-performance centre, developed by Toby Wetherill of GW Architects, commissioned by Paddle Australia.
There are some factors that will depend on the findings of a business case study, which is likely to take us into the early part of 2021. These factors include:
the broader community development
upgrades to existing facilities
future operating model and capital investment in new facilities
proposals to use renewable energy
connecting the venue to the city of Penrith via active transport
