The City of Casey will officially open the Autumn Place Community Hub on Saturday 25 May and residents are invited to join in the FREE community celebrations!
The opening celebrations will include free family activities, a sausage sizzle, face painting and mobile animal farm, as well as provide a great opportunity for local residents to check out their new community space.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon said Council is excited to officially open the new facility.
“We undertook a major revitalisation and expansion of the former kindergarten and Maternal and Child Health centre at Autumn Place, to deliver an integrated community hub in the heart of Doveton where residents can meet, learn, play, socialise and connect,” she said.
“The $5.27 million project delivered a redeveloped kindergarten with two rooms and outdoor play spaces, two Maternal and Child Health consulting rooms and a new large multipurpose community room with adjoining kitchen and courtyard.
“A new and improved park was also developed right next door as part of the project, which features a new playground, barbeque area with shelter, picnic space, seating, improved lighting and landscaping.”
River Gum Ward Councillors Wayne Smith BJ JP and Damien Rosario encouraged the local community to come along and join in the celebrations.
“We’re excited to celebrate the completion and official opening of this amazing new facility and would love to see the local community join us for what is sure to be a great day,” Cr Smith said.
“We’re proud of the revitalisation that has occurred in Doveton’s town centre and look forward to celebrating these recent upgrades, which make it a more inviting and well-utilised space,” Cr Rosario said.
