Belgravia Leisure to add new outdoor play park at Knox Leisureworks
Knox City Council in Melbourne has announced the addition of an outdoor ‘leisure play park’ to its Knox Leisureworks facility as part of a five-year plan for its future growth and operation.
The new play park addition to Knox Leisureworks came as part of the successful tender by Belgravia Leisure that the Council announced on 17th December. The successful tenderer is for the next five years with further possible extensions based on meeting performance standards.
To be built at a cost of almost $400,000, the new leisure play park will be a popular new addition to Knox’s leading indoor pool and fitness centre and is expected to reinvigorate the outdoors precinct of the Tormore Road facility in Boronia.
News of Belgravia Leisure as the new operator has been hailed as an ‘exciting new chapter’ in the centre’s operation, leading a facility that has served the community for more than 50 years.
Belgravia Leisure Chief Executive, Nick Cox stated "we’re excited to be taking on the operation of Knox Leisureworks and are especially looking forward to working with community groups within the municipality."
Knox Council Mayor Jake Keogh added “the addition of an outdoors leisure and play park is great news for local families. We’ve been focused so much during past decades on the inside of the building, that it’s time we add something special to the external part of the Boronia site.
“We’re excited to be welcoming Belgravia Leisure to head up our community swimming, aquatic and leisure centre in Boronia. The Community will also see a range of new initiatives and programs across Knox and in local areas promoting health and wellness. We’re thrilled to welcome Belgravia who have a wealth of experience in operating centres like Knox Leisureworks.”
Council’s transfer of operation builds on the work of past operator Victorian YMCA, with the centre being recently awarded the Aquatics and Recreation Victoria 2018 Health Club of the Year.
Mayor Keogh added “we’d also like to thank YMCA for its past management of the facility, and all the contributions made by the team in Boronia. We’re sure Belgravia will continue their high standards and provide even more opportunities for leisure and fitness in Knox."
