Broome Recreation & Aquatic Centre Upgrade

Major upgrades to the swimming pool at the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre are well underway as part of the $3.3 million project. 

Broome building company CWD is undertaking the work following an open tender process.

The aquatic facility has been closed since mid August to allow for improvements to important infrastructure, with the pool planned to be reopened in early 2017.

The upgrade of the 22-year-old aquatic facility is jointly funded by the Shire of Broome and the WA Department of Sport and Recreation, and includes replacing the brick-paved concourse, renewing swimming pool bulk heads and tiling, resurfacing the pebblecrete children’s lagoon, improving pool lighting, fully rebuilding the plant room and replacing the plant and filtration systems.

While the swimming pool has been closed to the public, thanks to a partnership with Mercure Broome several of BRAC’s fitness and learn to swim programs have continued. Aqua aerobics run on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings at the resort swimming pool, while swimming lessons are currently running in term four at a reduced capacity.

The BRAC recreation centre has seen minimal change to operations with dry group fitness classes, the indoor stadium, indoor/outdoor sports courts and playing fields all available as normal.
