Alkimos’ long-discussed new aquatic and recreation centre is a step closer to breaking ground after the Wanneroo City Council gave their approval to advertise the facility’s business plan last week.

Tha plan, endorsed by the Alkimos Aquatic and Recreation Centre Working Group, provides an assessment of the development and operation of the facility.

The news comes after the Council also accepted $25 million in funding for the project via the Federal Government’s Priority Community Infrastructure Program.

“Alkimos is expected to be one of Perth’s fastest growing suburbs over the next 20 years and the delivery of the Alkimos aquatic and recreation centre will have a strong positive impact on the City’s future planning for our northern corridor community,” said Wanneroo Mayor Linda Aitken of the funding boost.

“We are grateful to the Federal Government for providing funding to help us provide the community with access to this state-of-the-art recreation facility…

“It is fantastic to be entering the next phase of this exciting project and I am looking forward to the completion of the detailed design later this year.”
