Exciting plans released for new Salisbury Aquatic Centre

Plans have been unveiled for the new $29.9 million Salisbury Aquatic Centre which will feature a 10-metre-tall slide tower, Olympic sized outdoor swimming pool and heated 25 metre and smaller program indoor pools.

Construction of the highly-anticipated centre is underway at the former swimming pool site at Happy Home Reserve in Salisbury.

A number of artist impressions have been developed to depict the elements of the exciting facility, which will also feature a café, gym and waterplay for children in response to feedback from the community.

The waterslide will feature three slides, including two spiral slides.

The new Salisbury Aquatic Centre will operate year-round, significantly improving the community’s access to health, recreation and fitness opportunities.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge said the impressions gave a glimpse into what will be one of Council’s most significant investments into the Salisbury City Centre.

Many of us have great memories of the Salisbury swimming pool throughout the past 50-plus years, whether you learnt to swim there or you took your children every summer.

I am excited by the prospect of the Salisbury Aquatic Centre as the source of many happy memories for new generations to come, while bolstering our great city as a progressive, sustainable and connected place to be.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM

Earthworks are currently taking place with South Australian contractor Mossop Construction on site, with the facility on track for completion in mid-2024.

Council is completing the project in partnership with the State Government’s Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program, which provided $7.185 million towards the new centre.
