Have your say on the new aquatic and recreation centre
Following the City’s announcement on the new North Coast Aquatic and Recreation Centre for Alkimos, engagement with the community is now under way.
We want local residents to tell us how you will use the centre, which will be located in the Alkimos town centre.
The Centre will be a multi-purpose facility that will cater for fitness, health and wellbeing.
Invitation to have a say
Local residents are invited to complete our community survey to guide the design of the new facility.
The survey is now open and closes on Sunday, 3 January.

In July 2020 the City of Wanneroo Council endorsed a business case for a new North Coast Aquatic and Recreation Centre at Alkimos Central.
The new North Coast Aquatic and Recreation Centre will transform Alkimos Central and bring significant social and economic benefits to the area and surrounding suburbs.
The site will have easy access for the general public through the planned METRONET Alkimos train and bus stations, and via the Mitchell Freeway extension.
The construction of a public swimming pool in our northern coastal suburbs has been a high priority for the City for a number of years. In February 2018, Council unanimously carried a Motion on Notice approving the inclusion of an Aquatic and Recreation Centre development in the City’s Advocacy Strategy.
Currently, the only public aquatic facility servicing the City is Wanneroo Aquamotion, which includes a 25 metre indoor lap pool. For many residents, the closest facilities are HBF Arena and Craigie Leisure Centre in the City of Joondalup. The new North Coast Aquatic and Recreation Centre will be ideally placed to meet increased demand and provide greater convenience for residents of our northern coastal suburbs.
The business case recommends a staged approach to establishing aquatic facilities in the northern growth corridor; first at Alkimos Central and a second facility at Yanchep in the longer term, as Yanchep develops.
