Background

The need for a high quality aquatic and recreation centre to service the growing community was first identified by the City of Cockburn back in 2009.  With a rapidly growing population and existing leisure facilities reaching the end of their lifespan, the City decided to create a unique facility for the community at Cockburn Central West.

The resulting centre is one of the largest developments of its kind in Australia. The centre is also the home of Fremantle Football Club.

Employing more than 250 staff, the centre caters for the recreation activities of thousands of residents from across Perth’s southern metropolitan corridor.
