Rose Hill Ward April/May update 

Thanks to all who helped send off East Keilor Leisure Centre with a splash! The new centre is expected to be completed in late 2020. Don’t forget, while the new centre is being built, make use of our fitness hubs around East Keilor or transfer your membership to Windy Hill or Ascot Vale.

The school holidays are just around the corner. There will be plenty on offer to keep the kids occupied at our libraries, community centres and leisure centres. The holidays are also a great time to get out and about. Why not check out our Active You program for a fun fitness activity near you?
