New City of PerthThe new City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club in City Beach has been officially opened by WA Premier Colin Barnett.

 
New facilities include an ocean-facing gym, meeting and training rooms, change rooms, a first aid room, equipment wash-down areas and a member’s lounge. The upgraded facility will enhance the experience of locals and tourists alike.

 
Barnett said the significant upgrade would not only improve the operation of the facility, but also represented an investment in the long-term health of the local community.

 
“Members of the City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club play a crucial role in protecting City Beach visitors and it is essential they are supported with adequate facilities,” he said.

 
“The design was developed with extensive community consultation, which identified the need for improved and expanded facilities, with the club’s outdated building at capacity. The new club will provide a fantastic hub for local residents and visitors, providing healthy lifestyle activities that can be enjoyed by the community.”

 
The facility is part of the revitalised City Beach precinct, with the Town of Cambridge developing the area around the building to include parkland, restaurants, an amphitheatre and a promenade. A key design feature is the striking green concrete roof that provides a landscaped public plaza above the building.

 
The total cost of the redevelopment was $8.5 million.

 
Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said City Beach had grown to become one of Australia’s largest surf life saving clubs, with more than 1,280 members and 6,343 patrol hours each year.
