The City of Boroondara is inviting the community to have their say and help shape the design of their new Kew Recreation Centre.

Mayor of Boroondara, Cr Jim Parke, said the Kew Recreation Centre is the oldest aquatic centre in Boroondara and no longer meets community needs in terms of quality, functionality and the facilities provided.

“Council has budgeted $58 million to deliver the new Kew Recreation Centre. It’s time we rebuild the centre and deliver modern fitness and aquatic facilities suitable for all stages of life.

“Rebuilding the centre will encourage greater participation in physical activity and will have significant health and wellbeing benefits for the Boroondara community,” Cr Parke said.

The consultation is part of the first stage of the project and the feedback gathered will help inform the components which may be included in the design of the new centre.

Studley Ward Councillor, Cr Phillip Healey, encouraged all interested community members and stakeholders to tell us what they want to see in their new centre.

“The new and expanded centre will cater for a broad range of users from children and families to people with a disability and older adults. There will be more space and access for our community to exercise and socialise.

“We want to know what’s important to you and make sure the new centre meets your needs. There are many ways to participate in the consultation. Complete the online survey or register online to drop into one of the information sessions at the centre in late August,” Cr Healey said.

This stage of the consultation closes Friday 7 September 2018.
