Scarborough beach is going to be the ’place to be’ this summer!

More than $100 million is currently being spent by the WA State Government, through the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), and the City of Stirling (Stirling) to upgrade the foreshore of Scarborough and to create new, exciting beachfront destinations and community facilities. All major works will be complete in early 2018 in time for the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships to be held at Scarborough Beach.More than $100 million is currently being spent by the WA State Government, through the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), and the City of Stirling (Stirling) to upgrade the foreshore of Scarborough and to create new, exciting beachfront destinations and community facilities.

A huge lap pool is set to be opened to the public in early 2018. This pool will be geothermally-heated to 27°C and will boast eight 50-metre lanes along with four 25-metre lanes with multiple configuration options and a depth from 1.2- 2.2 metres.

If you prefer to enjoy the pool for pure relaxation, you can lounge in the leisure pool, which will be heated to 32°C all year round.
The leisure pool will also be used for those who want to learn to swim. Extensive lighting will illuminate the pool for night-time use, which is going to be perfect for those warm WA nights!

Other improvements are:

  • Scarborough Square – the heart of the redevelopment surrounded by cafes, restaurants, shops and bespoke arbour to provide shade;
  • Sunset Hill – a sloping hill offering scenic views over the ocean with rolling access to the beach and new promenades;
  • Beach Hub – offers a mix of recreational and retail spaces for the community to enjoy including the SSLSC and the City of Stirling’s beach service facilities;
  • Intergenerational Plaza – a multi-use space for sports activities and events featuring a skate park, climbing wall and half-court basketball area and;
  • Transit Hub – the central landscaped entry point to the Scarborough foreshore.

The heritage listed Clock Tower was relocated on 18 July 2017. The whale skeleton playground is due to be complete December 2017 and the new City of Stirling Beach Services and Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club building is due for completion early 2018.

Western Australians have enjoyed many sporting tournaments, concerts and events in the Scarborough Amphitheatre since it was built in 2006. When it is not being used for events, visitors enjoy the space for family outings or barbecues whilst admiring the clear blue waters or the Indian Ocean of the perfect sunset.
