We are pleased to announce that construction of the new Ashburton Seniors Centre is now underway, with redevelopment expected to be completed by mid-2020.

The new centre will improve accessibility and enhance the lifestyle of centre users. The new building will create spaces that better deliver the many activities and services offered at the centre to meet the needs of the community now and into the future.

Temporary accommodation is in place at the Ashburton Bowls Club car park. Here, all services that are usually delivered at Ashburton Seniors Centre will continue as normal throughout the construction period. This means that the public car parks behind the Ashburton Seniors Centre and beside the Ashburton Bowls Club will be closed to car parking for the duration of the building works to allow for the temporary accommodation.

Alternative car parking during this time can be found just nearby at Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre, Ashburton Park and surrounding streets, including:

  • Warner Avenue
  • Samarinda Avenue
  • Barda Avenue
  • Tarakan Avenue.

Be sure to observe all parking limits within these streets.

To keep up to date with the project, sign up to the New Ashburton Seniors Centre mailing list.
