About the centre Expand all
When will Mill Park Leisure reopen?
The gym and group fitness areas at Mill Park Leisure are now open! The pools, spa and sauna will open late May. Follow us on Facebook or check back on our website for the announcement of the exact aquatic opening date.
If you’re already a member, please refer to the Membership FAQs below to find out how your membership will be affected by the split-opening.
Why has the reopening been delayed?
Although we had hoped to open earlier, we experienced some delays early in the project due to an unexpected amount of rock and subsequent changes to the building scope, including the need to replace the roof to ensure the building is safe and efficient for many years to come.
The COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria also meant that we had limited construction workers on site during lockdowns and the supply of some building materials was affected. The gym and group fitness areas are now open and the pools will open late May. It'll be worth the wait!
What are the features of the new facility?
The key features of the facility include:
- Gymnasium (24hr access)
- Four Program rooms (for programs like Group fitness classes)
- 25m Indoor Pool with ramp access

Can I talk to someone in person?
If you have a query which has not been answered by the FAQs or the website, please get in touch via the online form and a staff member will contact you as soon as possible.
Alternatively, the gym and group fitness areas are now open, so you can pop over to say hello and find out more about Mill Park Leisure or book one of our public tours here.
How will Mill Park Leisure manage Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
The centre will operate in accordance with Victorian Government directions and health advice, to ensure the safety of our staff, patrons and the community.
What parking is available?

Will childcare be available when the facility reopens?
The childcare is expected to be available from July 2021. Once it commences it will operate on weekdays.

Do you have an App?
Our memberships are powered by Active World, our membership portal that was specifically designed to improve your experience with us! The app will give you greater control of your membership and the programs offered at Mill Park Leisure.
As you purchase a new membership with us or enrol in our GOswim learn-to-swim program, you will be directed to the Active World portal or app. To learn more about Active World click here.
In preparation for the centre opening we encourage you to download the app to manage your membership and in-centre experience.
I was a Mill Park Leisure member before it closed and had my membership transferred to TRAC. Do I need to sign up again?
Yes, unfortunately we are unable to transfer your current membership from TRAC to Mill Park Leisure, as the facilities are run by different operators. Additionally, the new membership structure is not the same as what it was before closing. You can join up here.
I was a Mill Park Leisure member before it closed and had my membership placed on suspension. Do I need to sign up again?
Yes, unfortunately we are unable to transfer your current suspended membership to Mill Park Leisure, as the current centre operator, Belgravia Leisure, is a different to the operator of Mill Park Leisure prior to closing. Additionally, the new membership structure is not the same as what it was before closing. You can join up here.
How much will a membership cost?
Visit this webpage for all the membership options and fees.
Why are the memberships fees more expensive than the fees I am currently paying at TRAC as a past Mill Park Leisure member?
The membership fees at all three of Council’s leisure facilities, including Mill Park Leisure, TRAC and Whittlesea Swim Centre are the same. However, as part of the inconvenience of relocating to TRAC (which is further away for many residents), during the closure of Mill Park Leisure, existing members were provided with a reduced rate for the duration of the redevelopment. A membership at Mill Park Leisure provides you with access to the premier leisure facility in the City of Whittlesea, boasting the latest health and fitness equipment, brand new pools, accessible facilities and exceptional service from our experienced team. We hope to see you there soon!
Is there a family membership?
There are no family memberships, but children under the age of 16 are eligible for a concession membership. Having a separate membership per person allows for different access and suspensions/cancellations are treated individually. In Active World our membership app, all members of the same family can be linked for easy management. Visit this webpage to view all our membership options.
