Armstrong Creek's Community Spirit

Wednesday, 12 June 2019

Following its official opening in April, the new Armstrong Creek East Community Hub is hosting fitness, dance, faith, youth, writing and new parent groups in the flexible 2800 square-metre facility.

The wide variety of activities reflects the rising population in Armstrong Creek’s first residential precinct, which is expected to be home to around 17,500 people when fully developed.

The hub is located on Central Boulevard next to the Armstrong Creek School, which opened in 2018. The $15.24 million facility has been jointly funded by the Victorian Government ($7.24 million) and the City of Greater Geelong ($8 million).

The largest integrated centre of its kind in Greater Geelong features a 191 place long day-care and kindergarten, operated by Bestchance Child Family Care.

It also includes Maternal and Child Health (MCH) services, providing free information, advice and support to families with children from birth to school age.

There are nine flexible areas for the groups and the public to use, including meeting spaces, multi-purpose rooms and a playroom.
