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.

Status

Demolition of the existing facility has commenced, and will be followed by the construction of the new centre in early 2021. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the new Kew Recreation Centre and thank centre users for their support.

For construction updates and to read about everything the new centre will offer please visit the City of Boroondara New Kew Recreation Centre project site.
