What's happening?

Work is underway on a $25 million redevelopment of Mill Park Leisure.

The centre will remain closed for the duration of the redevelopment. This will allow the community to access a fully operational and upgraded leisure centre much earlier than if it was constructed in stages and will reduce costs significantly.

During the redevelopment period, residents can enjoy fitness and aquatics at Thomastown Recreation and Aquatic Centre. Call 9463 0700 for membership options.

Mill Park Heights Child Care Centre & Kindergarten are still open for business and not affected by the works at Mill Park Leisure.

Project update

November 2020:

The main building works are almost complete at Mill Park Leisure! In early December, we're starting work on the roof, which is being replaced. We had hoped to keep the existing roof, but as part of the construction process, we discovered it needed to be replaced to ensure the centre is safe and efficient.

The opening of Mill Park Leisure has been pushed back to the first half of 2021 due to the impacts of COVID-19.

In addition to not being able to work at full capacity during Melbourne's Stage 4 lockdown, we've had delays in the supply of building materials.

We're working as fast as we can to ensure our residents have access to this state-of-the-art facility as soon as possible. It'll be worth the wait!

Project cost

Approximately $25 million.

The State Government has contributed $5 million towards the project - $2 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund and $3 million from the Community Sport Infrastructure Fund. 

Timelines

Construction is expected to be complete in the first half of 2021.
