The City of Mitcham has plans for a future Library, Community Centre and Waite Street Reserve, currently known as the Blackwood Community Hub.
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.
An Important Project for Blackwood Village
This project is one amongst a whole series of projects that are occurring in Blackwood. The Blackwood Community Hub will integrate other Council initiatives encouraging activation, pedestrian flow, improved parking, enhanced amenities and economic opportunities for Blackwood.

Following community consultation, Council will review feedback and complete the Blackwood Community Hub concept plans. Council will then meet to endorse the concept plans, seek costings and use the concepts to attract grants and secure investment in the project. Council will continue to provide regular updates to the community.
