Blackwood Community Hub

Blackwood Community Hub

The City of Mitcham has plans for a future Library, Community Centre and Waite Street Reserve, currently known as the Blackwood Community Hub. The community are invited to find out more about the Blackwood Community Hub and make suggestions that will help shape and seek funding for the development and use of this exciting future community place.

Blackwood Community Hub Vision 

The hub will bring together Blackwood Library and Blackwood Community Centre on to the site of the existing Blackwood Community Centre next to the Blackwood Green Playground and Waite Street Reserve at 4 Young Street.

Centrally located in the heart of Blackwood, the community hub will be a vibrant and inviting focal point for our community.

Waite Street Reserve, one of our highly valued regional parks, will receive a major upgrade as part of the project. Our vision for Waite Street Reserve is to create quality passive and active recreational spaces catering for all ages and with strong connections to our new library and community centre.

The Blackwood Community Hub will be an exciting multi-purpose facility that fosters community interaction and learning.
