Official reopening for $26 million Oakleigh Recreation Centre
The City of Monash has today officially reopened its redeveloped Oakleigh Recreation Centre, acknowledging the significance of the project to the community.
Mayor Brian Little, joined by Victoria Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Community Sport and Youth, Ros Spence; Senator David Van (representing the Federal Government) and Steve Dimopoulos, Oakleigh MP and Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier and for Mental Health, officially reopened the facility and unveiled a commemorative plaque.
Advising that the redeveloped Centre has been the biggest project Council has delivered to date, Mayor Brian Little stated “this has been a huge project for Council and we are very proud of this outstanding facility. It delivers on our commitment to provide the best quality facilities we can to support health and wellbeing in the municipality.
“It represents an unprecedented level of investment, work and dedication by many people both inside and outside Council and reflects the importance of sport and recreation in our community.”
The Victorian Government contributed $3 million and Federal Government contributed $2.1 million towards the project.
Waverley Gymnastics Centre, one of the busiest clubs in Victoria, which will be based in a new state-level facility at the Centre, contributed $1 million towards the project.
The Waverley District Netball Association, Waverley Basketball Association and Volleyball Victoria will also be running community sporting activities and competitions from the stadium, which has five new indoor multi-purpose sports courts.
The new facilities include a completely updated and expanded gym, rooms for spin (cycle), Pilates and yoga and a low sensory room (with quiet, soft lighting) for low stimulation/contemplative activities.
