All change at leisure cen­tre

Canning Times - - NEWS -

RIVER­TON Leisure­plex will un­dergo a facelift as City of Can­ning plans to turn the area into a com­mu­nity hub.

Hot on the heels of the li­brary re­fur­bish­ment, the re­de­vel­op­ments at the neigh­bour­ing leisure­plex will see Tum­blers Kids Gym close per­ma­nently from De­cem­ber 1.

The kids’ gym will be re­placed with a cy­cle stu­dio, train­ing ar­eas and re­vamped with new floor­ing, gym equip­ment and mu­sic sys­tem.

Ad­di­tional group fit­ness op­tions such as spin classes, freestyle classes, func­tional train­ing pro­grams and kids’ fit­ness classes will also be­come avail­able.

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said the kids’ gym clo­sure came about after a strate­gic re­view.

“Over time and with the es­tab­lish­ment of other sim­i­lar pri­vately-owned chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment venues, visi­ta­tion to Tum­blers Kids Gym has sig­nif­i­cantly de­clined, so the City has taken the op­por­tu­nity to look at how this space can best ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity,” he said.

Mr Ng said the City had al­lo­cated fund­ing for the de­sign of a na­ture play­ground in the area be­tween the leisure­plex and li­brary.

The meet­ing rooms at the leisure­plex will be con­verted into spa­ces for health-re­lated busi­nesses to lease. Stage one be­gins in De­cem­ber.
