Dandenong's New Aquatic and Wellbeing Centre Consultation (Dandenong Oasis)

Council is seeking community feedback to help shape the design of the new aquatic and wellbeing centre in Dandenong. 

In 2019, Council resolved to replace the existing Dandenong Oasis with a new centre at Mills Reserve, located on Cleeland Street in Dandenong. This decision was based on extensive planning and consultation and identified the need for the new centre to focus on health and wellbeing, with the aim to get more people, more active, more often.

Following two rounds of consultation and over 1,500 community surveys, Council agreed that the new Centre would include the following proposed facilities:

•    50m pool (with moveable boom)
•    Two (2) warm water pools
•    Learn to swim pool
•    Leisure pool / water play
•    Spa, sauna and steam room
•    Gymnasium    
•    Program / group fitness rooms
•    Allied health consulting suites
•    Meeting rooms/s and creche 
•    Café
•    Foyer, reception, administration
•    Changerooms and amenities
