Holden Centre | Lexus Centre

The Holden Centre serves as a centre of excellence for professional organisations and elite athletes.

Now home to Collingwood (AFL) , the Holden Centre was previously known as the Swimming and Diving Stadium, Olympic Swimming Stadium, Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Centre, Lexus Centre, Westpac Centre and unofficially The Glass House.

The venue was originally built to host the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games’ swimming, diving and water polo competitions.

The venue is administered by Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust.

HOLDEN CENTRE RENOVATION

In 2002 the heritage listed Olympic Pool was returned to its original shape, with a $20 million refurbishment overseen by one of the original architects Peter McIntyre. Its restoration reflected key elements of its original award winning plans.

The new facilities include administration offices, theatrette, exhibition space, world class gymnasium, 25m lap pool and hydrotherapy spa. A magnificent $25 million addition to the Holden Centre was opened in 2015, making superb new training and community facilities available for high-performance athletes and grass-roots level leisure and sports initiatives alike.

Fifty years after its design, the Olympic Swimming pool was Victorian Heritage listed, being the last remaining stadium structure from the 1956 Olympic Games and architecturally significant as an early example of pre-tensioned steel framed construction.
