St Albans Leisure Centre Replacement

We’re embarking on an exciting and ambitious project – to replace the St Albans Leisure Centre site (90 Taylors Road, St Albans) so that it delivers measurable social and health outcomes for Brimbank. 

Construction is proposed to start in 2019.

Project Aims

  • A brand new custom-built leisure and aquatic facility of which you can be proud. A place to exercise, be healthy, and have fun.
  • Ensuring St Albans Leisure Centre delivers significant, measurable social and health benefits for Brimbank. Having co-located services will help this; and
  • Building a strong community collaboration using “collective impact” principles: different groups working towards the one goal for lasting change.

Co-location Tenancy Opportunity

We’ve already done some work to find out if health and well-being organisations were interested in being co-tenants in the new facility. New tenants can provide ideas towards the centre’s design.

Tenants will have a unique opportunity to work with us to improve Brimbank’s social and health issues.

Co-location Opportunities

  • Early childhood services including long day care and kindergarten
  • Child and family social services
  • Physical activity and leisure services
  • Health and medical services
  • Other related services
