Alkimos aquatic and recreation centre design achieves another major milestone
Published Wednesday, 20th December 2023
The Alkimos aquatic and recreation centre project has taken another step forward after Council endorsed the schematic design at a meeting held this month.
The facility is set to feature indoor and outdoor pools, indoor sports courts, a splash pad, gymnasium, creche and play area.
The endorsement of the design at a projected cost of $78 million follows the acquisition of a 3.5-hectare site in the Alkimos Town Centre, located just 50 metres away from the future METRONET Alkimos train and bus stations.
Mayor Linda Aitken said the move was a fantastic step forward for the exciting project.
“Council is excited to see this popular project progress and very pleased it will feature a solar system that will offset the cost of pool heating and reduce the power consumption of the facility,” she said.
“We are grateful to have received funding commitments of $30 million from the Federal Government, $10 million from the State Government and $12.6 million through the Alkimos-Eglinton Developer Contribution Plan to help us deliver this facility for our growing community.”
The City will continue to explore additional funding options towards the project.
