Other aspects of the scheme include the installation of a new pontoon at Swansea Marina, the replacement of the existing council building at Knab Rock and the restoration of Olga, Swansea Museum’s historic Bristol Pilot Cutter that was built in 1909.
All aspects of the project will be officially launched towards the end of October.
Kate Hannington, 360 Centre Manager said: “The opening of 360 is a great day for Swansea and the surrounding area, providing the community and visitors with a superb new facility amidst a stunning natural resource.
“Our initial activity programme has been developed to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, ability or situation, can get involved and become more active.”
The construction of the building is being managed by Swansea Council and is backed by the Welsh Government through the European regional development fund, Visit Wales and the regeneration area programme.
Council cabinet regeneration member Councillor Nick Bradley said he hoped the new facility will further enhance Swansea’s status as a city of sporting excellence.
“Swansea Bay has always enjoyed a spectacular setting but this centre will further establish Swansea’s outstanding reputation for watersports by making the most of its stunning coastal location," he said.
“The new facility will help revive the area’s rich maritime heritage and further enhance Swansea’s growing status as a city of sporting excellence where top-class coastal activities are available for residents and visitors.
“The new centre will help boost the local economy by breathing even more life into our bustling promenade and bay.”
