Town of Port Hedland and YMCA Partnership Initiates Port Hedland Leisure

The Town of Port Hedland and YMCA Perth have entered into a four year partnership which will provide the Port Hedland community with a range of high quality aquatic, recreation and sporting services.  The new partnership will see YMCA Perth manage Port Hedland’s three major recreation facilities: Gratwick Aquatic Centre, South Hedland Aquatic Centre as well as the new multi purpose recreation centre located in South Hedland.  The Town’s new recreation centre will host a variety of recreation and leisure programs and encompasses an indoor stadium, fitness centre, group fitness studio, high quality function centre, meeting rooms, squash courts, club facilities and three outdoor courts.  Town of Port Hedland Mayor Kelly Howlett said the new management agreement would benefit the community by providing recreation services to a metropolitan standard, significantly increase the existing aquatic centres’ operating hours and provide an improved range of programs for all Port Hedland residents and visitors.  Mayor Howlett explained “the key objectives behind the partnership are to develop Port Hedland’s leisure facilities and associated services to a high standard.  “The partnership extends and strengthens the Town’s existing relationship with the YMCA and has been developed through extensive industry research conducted on other like-sized recreation facilities and negotiations focused on achieving the best outcomes possible for the local community.” [Read more…]
