Ellenbrook Indoor Leisure Centre

Electorate: Hasluck

Cost: $50 million

Project overview

Leisure is one of the key services the City of Swan provides to our residents.

With a growing population comes an increased demand for facilities to serve the community.

In 2015, the pavilion and playing fields were opened for stages one and two of the Ellenbrook District Open Space (EDOS).

Considered to be one of the finest facilities in Western Australia, the recreation site is part of an $11.4 million precinct for families, jointly funded by the City and the State Government.

The City of Swan is now eager to commence the third stage of the project - the Indoor Leisure Centre.

Residents of Ellenbrook and surrounds currently face significant travel time to get to the closest indoor recreation centre or aquatic facility. As the population of the Ellenbrook area rapidly increases, so does its demand for indoor sports.

An indoor recreation centre will address the remaining shortfall of indoor sport space across the district and would further address the increasing needs of a booming local population.

Building the facility has been identified as a priority for the City, due to the wide-ranging benefits for children, adults and elderly in a catchment area extending to Chittering, Toodyay and Bullsbrook.
