Baldivis South Community Centre already proving a hit

A NEW community centre in Baldivis has already taken bookings for its use before its official opening.

The Baldivis South Community Centre cost $3.5 million and is expected to take pressure off the Mary Davies Library in the rapidly expanding suburb of Baldivis.

A Lotterywest grant of $900,000 contributed to the building on the corner of Borough Road and Lamorak Way.

Baldivis MLA Reece Whitby said the centre was set to get a solid work-out after opening this week.

“Baldivis is an incredibly active local community, with so many groups and clubs looking for a place to meet,” he said.

“This centre is sorely needed, as I’m always being asked by groups about places to meet.

“This is a great example of what can be achieved for Baldivis when our State Government and Rockingham City Council works together with goodwill and co-operation.

“Generations of Baldivis children can now look forward to active and healthy childhoods as they grow up around this facility.

“It will cater for a rapidly growing community and includes a hall, kitchen and indoor and outdoor children’s activity spaces.

“The multi-purpose hub will facilitate a wide range of community activities and uses, including meetings and events, arts and cultural activities, playgroups, leisure and recreation.

“With a focus on families with young children, the centre will also feature two consultation rooms, providing space for the provision of support services.”
