FAQs

When will construction for the refurbishment start?

Construction for the Swan Active Midland refurbishment will commence on August 1, 2021.  During this time, Swan Active Midland will be temporary closed until early-2023.

As you may have seen, a lot of work is happening in the area. The new Midvale Skate Park recently opened and a new pavilion is being built at Ron Jose Oval.  While located close to Swan Active Midland, the new pavilion project is separate to the Midland refurbishment.

What is the timeline for this project?

We look forward to welcoming you through the doors of the new Swan Active Midland in early-2023.

We will be undertaking a significant amount of work to a facility that is nearly 40 years old. Therefore, a project of this complexity and size will take time to develop, build and complete.

We will continue to keep you updated with the progress of the refurbishment on this project page.

Will the centre temporarily close during construction?

Various options for a staged construction or a full closure were considered. 

To ensure the safety of our customers and staff, reduce projects costs and accelerate delivery of the project, the City will undertake a full closure of Swan Active Midland during construction.

During the closure, you will have the option of continuing to use your membership at Swan Active Beechboro or Swan Active Ballajura, and classes will be held at Midland Sports Complex.

What happens to my Swan Active Midland membership?

You will have the option of continuing to use your membership at Swan Active Beechboro or Swan Active Ballajura, or defer your membership at no extra cost.

When the centre closes, what other facilities are available?

The two Swan Active centres in Beechboro and Ballajura have recently undergone similar refurbishments.  Fitness classes will also be held at Midland Sports Complex.

 More information is available on our websites: 

Will my membership prices go up?

All fees and charges have been frozen for the 2020/21 financial year as part of the City’s COVID-19 stimulus package.

The refurbishment will not directly impact the cost of your membership.

The City review all its fees and charges each year, which includes a review of both private and other Local Government facilities. The City always seeks to provide a balance of competitive and affordable pricing for the services and facilities provided.

Will this affect the recreation and aquatic centre in Ellenbrook?

No, the recreation and aquatic centre in Ellenbrook is a separately funded project. Find out more about the Ellenbrook recreation and aquatic centre project.
