“It’s simply outstanding and will put smiles on thousands of faces every year”.

The community sports hub, which is built across 14 hectares at Pimpama, is the city’s largest-ever civic infrastructure project.

Work first began in October 2019, with more than 2300 workers, predominately from Queensland, taking part during the construction process.

“This project has been a significant contributor to keeping the city moving, boosting jobs for locals and injecting more than $161 million into the local economy,” Deputy Mayor Donna Gates said.

The hub includes a state-of-the-art aquatic centre featuring five pools, including a 50-metre outdoor pool, 25-metre 10 lane indoor pool, learn-to-swim pool, warm water program pool and water play pool.

It also boasts 12 netball courts, eight tennis courts, and a junior hot shot court, along with a fitness centre, 1km distanced marked walking trail, community park, and events park with Amphitheatre.

The hub hopes to attract 800,000 visitors in its first year, with a cafe, bbq areas, community centre, meeting rooms and dance studio also among the facilities on offer.
