The City of Cockburn was joint winner of the Gold Award for Best Practice in the Collaboration Between Government and Non-Government Organisations category of the 2018 Achievement Awards.
It shared the honour with Fremantle Football Club and Curtin University.
It is the second award in two weeks for the ARC, which also won the Parks and Leisure Australia (WA) Community Facility of the Year Award, and will now represent WA nationally with winners to be announced in Melbourne on October 16.
The City, the football club and the university developed the $109m Cockburn ARC facility in a collaborative partnership.
This enabled the partnership to leverage funding support from the WA and Commonwealth governments to create an industry first, cutting edge, integrated aquatic, recreation, education and elite athlete training facility for the community.
City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the Cockburn ARC continued to fulfil its mission to make more people more active more often, improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for Cockburn’s rapidly growing local population.
Curtin University ViceChancellor Professor Deborah Terry said the Curtin exercise program at Cockburn ARC provided a community service while educating third-year Bachelor of Exercise Science students within an industry setting.
Fremantle Football Club chief executive Steve Rosich said the Fremantle Dockers were delighted to be part of the award-winning project.
