King Island Community Gym
Development of the King Island Recreation Strategy in FY2019-20 identified unmet demand for a publicly accessible indoor exercise facility and improvement to existing outdoor tennis and netball courts at the Currie Oval precinct. Funding was promised during the 2019 election campaign through the Community Development Grants Program, and a grant deed signed in February 2022 providing funding of $1M for the development of a community gym and wellbeing facility and improvements to the existing outdoor courts.
A consultant team have been engaged to assist the Councillor Parks & Recreation Working Group and staff in progressing this project. Consultation conducted in August 2022 will be used to inform a concept design for the facility and scope of upgrade to courts. This concept will be discussed with Councillors in the first instance and then made available to residents and other key stakeholders in late 2022.
