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

April 2020:

  • The pool tiling is almost complete.
  • Carpark works are underway.
  • Plastering and painting is in progress.
  • Electrical lighting installation is in progress.
  • Tiling of change rooms, toilets and other areas is in progress.
  • The building façade is almost complete.

The opening of Mill Park Leisure has been pushed back to Summer 2020-21 due to the impacts of COVID-19 and the expansion of the scope of works.

We've had some delays in the supply of building materials due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an unexpected amount of rock, as well as some issues with the existing building, including the roof.

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

  • July 2018 - construction began
  • Summer 2020-21 - construction is expected to be complete.
