The Kew Recreation Centre is undergoing a major redevelopment that will see it transform into a modern facility that is suitable for all ages, abilities, and caters to a wide range of health and wellbeing needs.


To read about how the facility has been designed based on community feedback across three stages of consultation, to watch the latest update from the builder, and to read about everything the new centre will offer, please visit the City of Boroondara New Kew Recreation Centre project site.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the new Kew Recreation Centre and thank centre users for their support.
