  • Safety and security upgrade of Seacliff Recreation Centre now complete
  • Project included the installation of extra lighting and a new alarm system
  • The Coalition Government invested $5,000

The new lights are shining brightly at the Seacliff Recreation Centre in Adelaide's south west after the installation of a much needed safety and security upgrade.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the extra lighting and new alarm system would improve safety for volunteers, employee and members at the centre.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren want to either stay in or come back to, and safe recreational centres does just that,” Minister Nash said.

“Recreation centres play an essential role within the community as they promote social inclusion and encourage participation and engagement with the wider community.”

Federal Member for Boothby Nicolle Flint visited the Seacliff Recreation Centre today and said the upgrade will ensure the continued safety of volunteers and users of the centre.

“The installation of extra lighting and a new alarm system will provide additional security and safety for those using the facilities late in the evening,” Ms Flint said.

“The Seacliff Recreation Centre is a wonderful community asset offering a great venue to host sporting activities including gymnastics and judo.”

This project was jointly funded by the Coalition Government ($5,000), and the Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated ($443).
