Mill Park Leisure gym reopens as part of $25 million redevelopment

The first-class gym at Mill Park Leisure is now open, fresh from an extraordinary transformation. 

The much-anticipated reopening of Mill Park Leisure is being staged over two dates to allow community access to the state-of-the-art gym and group fitness areas as early as possible. The aquatic area is due to open in late May, pending the last stage of construction works.   

The modern 24/7 gym includes the latest equipment, expansive cardio and weight training areas, as well as medical and inclusive equipment options. It is the first leisure centre in Australia to feature a full-sized 12ft rock-climbing wall, ensuring that members and casual visitors have access to the latest innovative equipment for their fitness journey.

The building has been designed with a focus on sustainability including automated lighting controls, solar panels, motorised external blinds for solar heat control and water tanks for rainwater re-use.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said Council was proud to be reopening the inclusive and contemporary centre.

“Council’s investment into this modern leisure centre brings to life our plans to create a connected community and make sure that City of Whittlesea residents have access to high quality facilities to support their health and wellbeing,” Ms Wilson said.

"The gym layout, equipment and classes have been specifically designed to suit all ages and fitness goals, from strength-based training to virtual wellness classes.

“We are really pleased to welcome back returning members and look forward to seeing new members join the gym.”

The City of Whittlesea has invested $20 million into the Mill Park Leisure redevelopment and has received $2 million in funding from the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and $3 million from the Community Sport Infrastructure Fund.
