Beginning mid-year the Kew Recreation Centre will undergo an exciting redevelopment to provide the community with a modern, state-of-the-art facility catering to all ages and abilities. This page is designed to support members and visitors of the centre with alternative programming, class options and membership queries. For construction updates and to read about everything the new centre will offer please visit the City of Boroondara’s New Kew Recreation Centre project site.

Below are some FAQs regarding the centre closure.

  • Can I continue to use my membership?

    Yes, absolutely. Your membership provides you with reciprocal rights to all four Boroondara Leisure and Aquatics Facilities. So while Kew Recreation Centre is closed, you can continue to visit Boroondara Sports Complex, Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre, and Ashburton Pool and Aquatic Centre as part of your membership.

    Please speak to our frontline staff around other options such as a free suspension of your membership.

  • What are my alternative options while the centre is closed?

    We are currently working with the City of Boroondara in developing a suite of options for you. Work is being undertaken to ensure some regular programming and classes can continue at different locations. We are liaising with instructors, key user groups and staff to ensure the options provided will best suit you and your needs.

    A comprehensive alternative options booklet (print and digital) will be provided in the coming months.

    We want to ensure all members are provided with appealing alternative options and appreciate your patience as we work towards this.

  • Where can I find project updates?
