Locals are looking forward to the opening of Gungahlin Leisure Centre, which is due to take place at the start of next year.
Residents of Gunghalin real estate have been crying out for new recreational facilities for years – and it is hoped that this new facility will hit the mark.
Highlights of the centre will include 50 and 25-metre pools, as well as a special area designed for children.
The eight-lane 50-metre pool will meet Olympic standards for water polo, while youngsters will be given the opportunity to learn how to swim in the smaller pool.
A shallow pool and splash decks are to be available to youngsters as well.
Other highlights of Gungahlin Leisure Centre will be a gym complete with fitness rooms and classes, which will be available to people living in the local area and beyond.
An on-site cafe is also shown in the plans, allowing parents to keep an eye on their children while enjoying refreshments both indoors and out.
With the area seeing a population boom over recent years, this new facility is likely to be a welcome addition to the community who want access to sports and recreation.
