Swirl. Circular Head’s new wellbeing centre has a name.
Smithton Wellbeing, Indoor Recreation and Leisure, or Swirl for short, was chosen from a list of 50 names put forward by community members.
“The vision for the facility is that it will be a place of movement and activity,” says Circular Head Mayor Daryl Quilliam.
“Swirl fits this vision.
“As a place for leisure and recreation the facility also provides a place to increase social interaction.”
The $12 million project is jointly funded with $3.8M from the Australian government, $3.5M from the Tasmanian government and funding from Circular Head Council completing the remaining $4.7M.
Swirl will include a six-lane 25 metre pool, three-lane six by 12.5 metre program pool and aquatic play area as well as multipurpose program space.
Three winners have been selected from the naming competition, hosted by Circular Head Council and Belgravia Leisure, and will be receiving a year’s membership to Swirl.
