Why is the City undertaking a future aquatic facility study?

    The Kalamunda Water Park, previously known as Kalamunda Wet’n’Wild, was originally built in the mid-1960s and has been operating for 55 years. Over its life the facility has undertaken numerous upgrades and renewals to best service the needs of the community at the time. It has been determined due to the current age and condition of the facility that it is nearing the end of its functional life, therefore future planning is now required to ensure the City’s services best meet the needs of the community.

    When will the study be completed?

    It is anticipated that the study for a future aquatic facility within the City will be completed by December 2020.

    Will the existing Kalamunda Water Park continue to operate?

    The existing Kalamunda Water Park will continue to open to the public during the months of November and March each year for the foreseeable future.

    Once the business case has been endorsed by Council the City will further advise the community on the future of the existing Kalamunda Water Park and implementation of any future aquatic facility.

    How can I provide feedback?

    Comments close Friday 13 December 2019.

    What will happen next?

    All consultation will be collated to inform the needs assessment to identify the need for a future aquatic facility and specific facility requirements. Once the needs assessment has been completed, a suitable site location and facility concepts will be developed in consultation with Council. Subject to Council support, a draft business case for a future aquatic facility within the City will then be advertised to the public for comment in mid-2020. The community feedback will then be collated and considered by Council as part of the final business case in late 2020.
