Mill Park Aquatic Center Redevelopment

Mill Park Aquatic Center Redevelopment

Mill Park is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 11 miles northeast of Melbourne’s CBD. Its local government is the City of Whittlesea. As of the 2016 census, Mill Park had a population of 29,710.

The area is named for the corn mill that George and Francis Coulstock built on the Plenty River in the 1840s. The property was sold to Henry “Money” Miller (1809-1888). He bred racehorses and conducted a range of dairy and grazing activities sufficient to employ 65 people who were housed in a village on the property. The Findon Hounds and the Findon Harriers Hunt Club – a name associated with Miller’s residence – Findon in Kew – were based in Mill Park.

In 1980s, Mill Park experienced rapid residential development with state and church elementary schools (Mill Park Primary School, Saint Francis Primary School). The Mill Park Post Office opened on August 1, 1983.

Why did it need redevelopment?

Mill Park Leisure is modern watersports and recreation facility in Mill Park, in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Known for its diverse range of programs and services, Mill Park Leisure is an inclusive center catering to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

With over 680,000 annual visits, families from across the city of Whittlesea choose this facility for its quality service, world-class programs, and family-friendly atmosphere.

Commercial landscaping is just part of Mill Park Leisure’s $25 million redevelopments. The fully landscaped outdoor area for this project includes play equipment, BBQ grills, and outdoor exercise equipment.

The much-anticipated redevelopment of Mill Park Leisure was scheduled to begin in mid-2018 and provide $25 million for a full upgrade of the fitness and aquatic areas.

Just a few minutes walk from South Morang train and bus stations, the new development meets community feedback which showed there was significant community demand for it.
