The Westwood Recreation Center, located on the north shore of the River Dee, has been operating for about 20 years, but the first time it will open for recreational use is expected to be later this month.
The centre is expected be open from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, from 9:30am to 2:30pm on weekends and from 9pm to 5am on public holidays.
It will be open seven days a week for up to 30 people, with a limit of four people per tent.
Rebecca Cuthbertson from Westwood Recreational Properties said the centre was “absolutely delighted” with the decision.
“We’re very excited to open the centre,” she said.
“We’ve been in discussions with the government, with the ACT Government, and they’ve said they’re going to make sure the centre is up and running.”
We think it’s a good thing for the environment.
It means we have more people walking and cycling to work, and also we have a better place to sleep.
“Westwood Recreation Properties said it had already secured its own private water supply and had set up a new camp site.
Cuthberttson said the project would also see more people using the area and the nearby riverside for recreational purposes.
The new facility is expected cost about $10 million, but Ms Cuthberttson is confident that the project will be able to cover its costs.”
The project itself will take care of itself and the surrounding property will also be covered by the project,” she added.
