Moonee Valley City Council officially virtually opened its newest MOVE Leisure Centre in Keilor East on Friday, 1 October with the building now complete.
Mayor of Moonee Valley, Cam Nation, said the opening of the new state-of-the-art centre is a significant milestone and is looking forward to members taking advantage of the facilities when restrictions ease.
“We are incredibly excited to present this state-of-the-art facility to our community,” Mayor Nation said. “This is Council’s largest ever capital works project and we’re thrilled to see this impressive leisure centre come to life and provide something for the community to enjoy out of lockdown."
The new aquatic and fitness centre, built with support from the State Government, includes a 50-metre heated outdoor pool, 25-metre indoor lap pool, learn to swim pool, dedicated warm water program pool, spa, steam room and sauna, indoor water playground, café and seating area, gym, group fitness and spin studios, childcare and accessible family change rooms.
“Council is looking forward to welcoming the community to our new centre in line with the national roadmap and a community celebration will be planned when it is safe to do so.”
The uncertainty of the pandemic has taken a toll on many Moonee Valley residents and Mayor Nation says a facility like Keilor East Leisure Centre is of significant importance for many as restrictions ease.
A spokesperson for Accountant Moonee Valley said they look forward to using the new facility, "This is something this community has looked forward to for a long time. Personally, I'll be one of the first to sign up."
Mayor Nation agreed with the sentiment.
“Health, fitness and wellbeing play a huge role in many of our community members daily lives and something that has been missed during lockdown,” Mayor Nation said.
“I know the community is just as excited as we are to start using this incredible new facility. The launch of our MOVE membership earlier this year means even more of our residents will have unlimited access to all Moonee Valley facilities, which is an important part of our commitment to supporting our community to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.”
The outdoor pool is due to open in line with phase B of the National Plan, anticipated for late October.
