On Saturday 19 May, Cockburn ARC celebrated its first birthday.
Cockburn ARC celebrated its first birthday this month and the local community came along to the party.
A morning tea with a giant birthday cake, happy birthday singers and a huge birthday card to sign, was held at the centre at 10.30am on Saturday, 19 May.
Mayor Logan Howlett said the historic occasion was a positive sign of the centre’s resounding success and popularity in the community.
“More than 1.2 million visits have been recorded at the centre since it opened officially on 19 May last year,” Mayor Howlett said.
“Nearly 48,000 passes to the waterslides have been sold and its treadmill users have walked the equivalent of five laps around the globe.”
“This means that the ARC has well and truly achieved its aim of encouraging more people to be more active more often.”
Winners of the inaugural ARCaptured photography competition were announced at the celebration.
