As the company behind a proposal to build a $2 billion theme park resort, InspireWA is interested in working closely with the City of Swan’s plans for a sport and aquatic centre.

‘Not only will our projects complement one another, we are also seriously looking into some way of combining resources and saving the City money, such as with a shared water treatment facility,’ Mr Pearson said.

The theme park resort would be located at the southern end of Whiteman Park and include hotels, a water park, safari park and restaurants.

The City of Swan is planning a $200 million 72-hectare regional open space in Whiteman, offering outdoor sports fields, a regional sports complex, gymnasium and regional aquatic centre.

‘We are very supportive of InspireWA’s proposal for an iconic tourism project and keen to investigate ways the aquatic elements of the theme park can integrate with the City’s plans,’ City of Swan acting CEO Jim Coten said.

The regional open space is planned for land adjoining Marshall and Beechboro Roads.

Mr Pearson said InspireWA looked forward to the possibility of connecting the aquatic centre to their resort project.

‘I’ve seen the concept photos for the aquatic centre ” it’s very impressive but I believe we could help boost the project to include a first-class diving and Olympic standard pool,’ he said. ‘Attaching the aquatic centre to our themed water park would be a major attraction to showcase the Swan Valley and State to the world.’
