Published Friday, 9th December 2022

The Alkimos Aquatic and Recreation Centre (AARC) has advanced to the detailed design stage, after Wanneroo Council endorsed the progression of the project at its December meeting.

Wanneroo Mayor Linda Aitken said the next stage of the project will provide a more accurate picture of the facility, the costs and the construction timeline.

“The northern corridor community has been so supportive of the AARC project from its infancy, and I look forward to being able to share the detailed designs with them,” Mayor Aitken said. 

“It’s been fantastic to see the local community getting involved in this project, and I’m proud that the City is moving a step closer to breaking ground on the site.

“We will continue to work with external technical stakeholders, sporting and community groups, and the project working group moving forward.”

The City has received funding commitments from both the State and Federal governments for the AARC facility, which will feature indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym and fitness facilities, sports courts, a crèche, café, change rooms and a car park.

“We are grateful to have received $30 million from the Federal Government, $10 million from the State Government and $10.6 million through the Alkimos-Eglinton Developer Contribution Plan to help us deliver this facility for our growing community,” Mayor Aitken said.
