$30 million for the High Wycombe Aquatic & Leisure Centre and Community Hub

A re-elected Morrison Government will invest $30 million into building the much-needed aquatic and leisure centre in High Wycombe, to be co-located with the new High Wycombe Community Hub.

Liberal candidate for Swan, Kristy McSweeney, said the commitment will provide world-class facilities for residents of Swan that will be conveniently located near the new High Wycombe train station.

“Our community has been fighting hard for this project and this commitment by the Morrison Government will be a huge win for local residents,” Ms McSweeney said.

“The current aquatic facility in the area, the Kalamunda Water Park, is nearing the end of its life and now is the perfect time to build a contemporary and convenient aquatic centre, alongside the new High Wycombe Community Hub.

“The new aquatic centre will include heated 25 and 50 metre pools, along with learn-to-swim, hydrotherapy and slide pools, new changerooms and a café.

“The community hub will include community meeting rooms, co-working spaces and a childcare centre, plus brand new recreation facilities, with two indoor basketball courts, group fitness rooms, a gymnasium and allied health rooms for lease to local small businesses.

“As our community continues to grow, our community, sporting and leisure facilities need to be able to keep up with growing demand. This funding will benefit our local community, including the many young families who live in and around High Wycombe who deserve access to state-of-the-art facilities right in their backyard.

The $60 million project in High Wycombe will be delivered in conjunction with the WA State Government and the City of Kalamunda.

“I also welcome the commitment from the WA State Government toward the project for our local community here in Swan,” Ms McSweeney said.

Only the Morrison Government will deliver a better future for Swan and this is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
