The City of Melbourne is planning to redevelop Kensington Community Recreation Centre to make sure its services remain relevant, affordable and accessible to the local community.

Kensington Community Recreation Centre originally opened more than 40 years ago. Aside from minor maintenance, the facility has remained relatively untouched since 1976.

We’ve been looking at recreational centres and their function within the community, and have been speaking with current tenants, YMCA and national sporting associations.

In early 2019 we spoke to the community to hear your ideas for the centre. The feedback will help us prepare a concept design for the redevelopment, which will be available for further consultation in mid 2019.
