The URBNSURF facility is built around a man-made surfing lagoon. The lagoon and the associated wave generating technology delivers high quality, authentic surfing waves and creates ideal conditions for surfing and other surf sports. The development entails changes to the existing P5 Carpark.
The construction and operation of the wave lagoon is taking place within the P5 Carpark accessed off Hill Road at Sydney Olympic Park. Along with the lagoon, URBNSURF Sydney is constructing an ancillary café, function room and training centre facilities within the site.
A portion of the existing car parking adjacent to the Surf Park will be retained and utilised for Surf Park car parking. The P5 car park comprises of three separate areas providing in total approximately 2,550 car parking spaces (including 77 disabled parking spaces). The URBNSURF development will be located within the central P5 parking area. This area currently provides some 844 spaces (including 43 disabled spaces) and an infrequently used bus parking / layover area.
