All the best fitness facilities at this all new centre
It has been around two and half years in the making with millions spent on this brand new fitness and leisure centre at Campbelltown in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide. The centre opened in September 2016 and will cater to all ages with a variety of services catering to community health and fitness.

The ARC is a really big venue with the latest gym and fitness equipment. There are also personal trainers on the staff. There are separate rooms for fitness activities such as cardio, weights training and exercise classes. These all held at day, evening and weekend time slots. There is also a dedicated quiet room for yoga and meditation classes. The gymnasiums for fitness and healthy mind events are held in rooms upstairs and far from noisy kids in the pool. Enclosed soundproof rooms with frosted glass fronted panel keep it all private and peaceful. In this area, you will also find five international standard squash courts.

On the sports side, the centre has large indoor basketball and sports areas with seating for viewing games. There are a numerous groups you can join to play sports, including a flat surface roller derby group. Ball sports are for children and adults, so enquire about next term's program or ongoing clubs.

One of the most popular parts of the leisure centre will surely be the indoor aquatic areas. Here there is a smaller shallow pool called the programs pool, where children take swimming lessons and splash about. Lessons for adults and children are provided by the centre. Next to this is a water play area and a large spa area which children can frolic in. Easy walk down ramps make access easy. Over at the back of the water area and away from some of the noise, is a 25 metre swimming pool where adults can do lap swimming. In addition, there is a spa and sauna area indoors out of view of the pools. Entry to these is included in the adult entry fee.

The centre has a cafe with glass viewing of the pool area. Here you can get light meals and relax after your swim or workout with a barista coffee. The cafe area overlooks the swimming pools in a pleasant open design.
The whole place looks clean fresh and of course all new. My only comment would be the changing rooms look a little small, especially the one at the children's pool when people take strollers and all the gear in there, it is difficult to walk around. But there is more than one changing rooms so you can always go to another one. The centre also has a creche, however it is very popular and bookings are essential.
The ARC Leisure Centre will prove a very popular year round venue for the residents of the eastern suburbs. Visitors are welcome also. For transport take any bus that goes along North East Road. Stop number 19 on Lower North East Road is right outside the centre. The venue is about 50 metres from Glynde corner on your left. The centre is built on a side of a slope and the car park in on three levels. Don't waste your time looking for a park lower down as they are usually full.
