ARC to be ‘among best in coun­try’

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

COCK­BURN ARC is half way to com­ple­tion.

Dur­ing a site visit to the $109m recre­ation fa­cil­ity in Cock­burn Cen­tral West last week, Cock­burn Mayor Lo­gan Howlett said the project was track­ing well.

“We’re ap­proach­ing the 50 per cent com­ple­tion mark and as we can see be­fore us now, the ground is look­ing very good in­deed,” he said.

“So many peo­ple are look­ing for­ward to it open­ing.

“We’re not too far away – around March next year.”

Mr Howlett said the part­ner­ship be­tween the fed­eral and state gov­ern­ments, the Fre­man­tle Dock­ers, Curtin and the com­mu­nity to build the fa­cil­ity put it among the best in the coun­try.

“Cer­tainly, at around $110 mil­lion it puts us in the ball park for the whole of Aus­tralia as be­ing one of the bet­ter com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties avail­able for all to use,” he said.

The cen­tre will in­clude a heated in­door pool, a 50m out­door heated pool, three spe­cialty pools, three wa­ter slides, sport courts and a café, among other fea­tures.

The Fre­man­tle Dock­ers will also be based at the site.
