Gold Coast community sport and aquatic centres to benefit from budget funding
Gold Coast City budget is committing almost $20 million towards community sports and aquatic centres and venues.
$19.354 million will be invested in key projects including:
• $5 million to complete Pimpama Sports Hub
• $6.7 million to finalise design and commence construction of the redeveloped Palm Beach Aquatics and Community Centre
• $7.2 million for construction of the Broadbeach Community Precinct, focusing on the expansion and refurbishment of the Albert Waterways Community Centre
• $1.8 million to advance planning and design of the Coomera Civic Hub
• $710,430 for disability, access and safety improvements including a new Changing Places facility at Paradise Point
Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate notes “everyone loves our community venues, libraries, pools and sporting fields – and we have ensured the 2021-22 budget meets the community’s expectations.
“We have seen massive investment in major community venues in the past few years. The recently-opened Miami Aquatic Centre ($18.4 million) is incredible and the $80 million Pimpama Sports Hub continues to develop.”
