Welcoming summer at Scottsdale Aquatic Centre

Peter Gutwein,Premier

The new Scottsdale Aquatic Centre is a great investment in sport and recreation in the north-eastern community and a very welcome addition on the first day of summer.

The newly opened Centre is a great example of what can be achieved when Local and State Governments work together.

Importantly, the vision for the re-imagined aquatic facility has been driven by the Council in tandem with the community.

Increasing Tasmanians’ participation in sport and physical activity is an important objective of the Tasmanian Government. Investing in high-quality facilities for more Tasmanians to be active supports this goal.

We are proud to have contributed $3 million to this important sporting precinct (including $2.9 million towards the aquatic centre with a small portion going towards upgrades to nearby netball facilities), along with the Dorset Council’s investment of $4 million.

Congratulations to the Dorset Council for undertaking such a significant investment on behalf of its community.

This facility is free to the public and will provide great benefit for future generations to enjoy.
