The new swimming facilities showcase the exciting $28.4 million redevelopment of the Salisbury Aquatics and Recreation Enclosure, which is set to cause a stir throughout the city of Salisbury and northern suburbs.
Scheduled to be completed in 2024, the construction phase of the redevelopment officially began on Wednesday, July 13, with Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM laying the first sod at Happy Home Reserve.
The City of Salisbury has received $7.185 million from the South Australian Government’s Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program in 2021 to help make the redevelopment a reality.
Key elements of the redevelopment include; a new 50 meter outdoor pool, 25 meter indoor heated lap and leisure pools, water slides, gymnasium, water park and cafe.
The City of Salisbury community played a vital role in shaping the project, with the redevelopment expected to provide a facility that meets the vision of the local community.
The combination of indoor and outdoor pools allows for year-round use, while encouraging visitors to enjoy the fantastic natural surroundings and hiking trails.
The construction process will create more than 90 jobs, while about 27 jobs will be created after the completion of the project.
Salisbury Town Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said it was exciting to see construction begin, with the community looking forward to the project being completed in 2024.
Mossop Construction and Interiors, a proud South Australian company, is tasked with delivering the exciting redevelopment of the Salisbury Aquatic and Recreational Enclosure.
