The final piece of The Grange redevelopment is now complete, with the revamped Grange Community Centre officially unveiled today.
The mammoth Wyndham City project included an upgrade of the existing community centre plus three new community rooms, a community lounge space and a landscaped courtyard.
Meanwhile, the upper windows of the façade include a visually striking artwork of birds as they migrate to Wyndham by contemporary artist Brian Robinson.
Wyndham City Mayor Adele Hegedich said the redevelopment gave the community new and improved spaces for people to meet and gather, and to run programs and services.
“As Wyndham’s population continues to grow at a rapid rate, so too does the need for upgraded infrastructure to meet our community’s needs,” Cr Hegedich said.
“The Grange Community Centre has served the Wyndham community well for nearly three decades, and these works have catapulted this popular centre into the 21st century, providing Hoppers Crossing residents with the community facilities they need and deserve.”
Council’s City Design portfolio holder, Josh Gilligan, said the community centre upgrade was part of a $3.75 million Wyndham City redevelopment of The Grange that also included work to the hub’s two adjoining sports fields.
“Community hubs such as The Grange are the lifeblood of communities, and children, young families and seniors are just some of the groups that will benefit from this redevelopment,” Cr Gilligan said.
“I would like to thank the State Government for their generous $1 million Growing Suburbs Fund grant towards the community centre upgrade.”
