Funding welcomed for Active Together project

Swan Hill Rural City Council leisure centres will benefit from $2.95 million in upgrades thanks to funding announced today by Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp MP.

Swan Hill Rural City Council Mayor Bill Moar said the funding would transform community indoor leisure centres in Swan Hill and Robinvale.

“Our Active Together project will transform leisure centres in Swan Hill and Robinvale into fully inclusive, accessible, sustainable, multi-purpose sport and recreation precincts.

“Swan Hill Leisure Centre will gain a significant gym expansion and the Robinvale Leisure Centre will benefit from extended gym space, along with an additional highball court,” Cr Moar said.

Cr Moar said the project was expected to attract new members as well as re-engage participants.

“This project is expected to support existing user groups, participants as well as enhance our region’s economy and liveability factors,” he added.

In addition to the substantial $2.95 million in funding via the State Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Fund, the $3.6 million project has received funding from the Federal Government and Council.

The project is expected to get underway in July this year and be completed by March 2023.
