State Aquatic Centre and GP Plus Health Care Centre
The South Australia Aquatic and Leisure Centre at Marion was opened on 26 April 2011. It boasts a 50-metre competition swimming pool and a 55-metre diving and water polo pool alongside 1000 square metres of leisure and recreational water.

It provides the facilities to nurture future swimming and diving stars as well as a place for the community to learn to swim, get fit and enjoy a fabulous centre.
The GP Plus Health Care Centre has been designed to achieve a 5 Star Green Star Office design rating through energy efficiency and material recycling. It offers a broad range of health care services that work together to help people stay healthy.
