The eagerly awaited transformation of Salisbury Aquatic Centre, with its impressive $29.9 million redevelopment, is rapidly approaching its final stages.

The Salisbury Council has shared exciting updates on the progress, including the nearing completion of the 10-metre-high water slide tower and the highly anticipated kids’ waterpark. These additions promise to make the aquatic centre a must-visit destination when it opens, which is said to be ready for the middle of 2024.

One of the centrepieces of this revitalisation is the dedicated kids’ waterpark, set to feature fountains and a range of engaging splash play features, creating a vibrant space for young community members to enjoy. Additionally, the towering 10-meter water slide promises to provide thrills and excitement for visitors of all ages.

Beyond the aquatic attractions, significant progress has been made in various building services. This includes the successful completion of electrical work, lighting installation, air-conditioning systems, and internal wall and ceiling lining in the state-of-the-art fitness gym and contemporary change rooms.

The gym, designed to overlook the outdoor pools and surrounding grass area, aims to offer a modern and inviting atmosphere with ample natural light and open space.

As the project approaches its final stages, several key elements are yet to be completed, including the new Tennis Club rooms, a new car park, and road resurfacing, all of which will further enhance the facility’s appeal.

The council has also just revealed the full Salisbury Aquatic Centre in flythrough video which shows Mayor Gillian Aldridge showcasing the developments so far and the work done with community feedback on the project.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge, speaking about the project back in March, expressed her excitement about the Salisbury Aquatic Centre becoming a hub for new memories.

“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.”

The Salisbury Aquatic Centre development is co-funded by The Government of South Australia’s Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program, reflecting its significance as a community asset.
