We are looking to create a Lifestyle and Wellbeing Hub and want your feedback about what the focus of this amazing new community space should be.

It is part of consultation on our draft Community Infrastructure Plan and we want as many people as possible to participate.

The vision for this hub – located in the Henley Precinct that includes Henley Community Centre, Henley Cottage, Riverside Preschool, Gladesville Reserve, the skate park and basketball courts and The Happy Hens community garden – is for a precinct that lends itself to services and facilities that support health and lifestyle.

Opportunities

Facilities and associated uses:

  • Construct synthetic field/s with a shared Sports and Community Facility.
  • Improved amenities for sporting activities including storage, change rooms, etc.
  • Consider gym/café to service users and local sporting clubs as part of the new amenities.
  • Relocate the current cricket pitch either elsewhere on the site or subject to agreement relocate to another site.
  • Cafe/restaurant to service visitors to the reserve.
  • Meeting rooms to cater for community groups with associated back of house facilities such as kitchen and amenities.
  • Produce/craft markets.
  • Community gardens.
  • Provision of infrastructure to enable the staging of outdoor music/cultural events.
  • Community playground.
  • Preschool and potential for increased childcare centre.
  • Public amenities.
  • Potential for increased access to the waterfront.
  • Potential for residential development with a sustainable focus.

Have you visited the current location? Would you support the Lifestyle and Wellbeing Hub? Do you have any suggestions?
