Mill Park Leisure to open in stages

Monday, March 22, 2021

The much-anticipated re-opening of Mill Park Leisure will be staged over two dates to allow access to the gym to start as early as possible.

The state-of-the-art gym will open to members and casual visitors on Wednesday 28 April, followed by the aquatic area at the end of May.

The innovative gym is fitted with technology-enhanced cardio and strength equipment. It features 22-inch screens on all treadmills, video demonstration and programming options, as well as medical and inclusive equipment options for the ultimate cardio, strength, group training and cycling experience.

Membership to Mill Park Leisure has already climbed to nearly 1000 people getting ready to return to the facility or who have signed up for the first time.

The aquatics area includes four pools, spa and sauna.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said it was an exciting time for people living in the City of Whittlesea who are eagerly awaiting to resume or start their fitness journey at Mill Park Leisure.

“We know the community is very keen to get active at Mill Park Leisure, which is why we’re opening the gym and group fitness areas first while we finalise work in the pool area,” Ms Wilson said.

“We’re looking forward to the community experiencing this truly amazing space, with exercise opportunities for beginners right through to fitness gurus.”

The opening of Mill Park Leisure couldn’t have come at a better time for local resident and mum-of-three, Anna Paras.

“With my two oldest boys now off at school, I’m really looking forward to spending some time back in the gym,” Ms Paras said.

“It’s great to have a leisure centre nearby that has group fitness classes, new cardio equipment and supportive staff.”

The City of Whittlesea has invested $20 million into this project. We thank the Victorian Government for the $2 million in funding from the Growing Suburbs Fund and $3 million from the Community Sport Infrastructure Fund.
