Plans are well underway to transform the Payneham Memorial Swimming Centre into a state-of-the-art water park.

The Council will be investing $16.5 million next financial year in this project, in addition to $500,000 being spent this year.

Once completed the Council’s investment will be almost $24 million, which includes a $5.6 million contribution from the State Government.

Work is expected to start in late–2022.
