As part of MV2040’s vision for a healthy city (as well as our Aquatic Leisure Centre Plan 2014-23), the renaming of the leisure facilities and signage is being developed to enhance access to and promote use of our leisure facilities.
The consistent and improved branding will create greater awareness of Council's programs and services, encouraging healthy lifestyle choices and promote residents to be active, physically, mentally and socially. Therefore, Council is proposing to rename four leisure centre facilities.
The renaming went out for public consultation, and Council is currently assessing community feedback.
We will remain in touch with members about any changes to the name of Ascot Vale Leisure Centre.

Ascot Vale Leisure Centre does not offer hydrotherapy.

The facility has warm water pools and programs only, which will resume in accordance with the easing of restrictions.
