The Sunshine Leisure Centre will undergo a facelift over the coming months.

Works on a new cafe will start tomorrow with the old cafe space to be converted into a merchandise stand.

In addition, the indoor leisure pool, spa and indoor changerooms will be closed for a six-week period starting from July 1 while maintenance and renovation works are completed.

The 25-metre indoor pool, outdoor pool, gym and group fitness room will stay open for business, as will the recently upgraded outdoor changerooms.

Brimbank mayor Lucinda Congreve said there would still be plenty of reason to visit the leisure centre this winter.

“We want to realise the full potential of Sunshine Leisure Centre and we’ve been making a number of improvements at the centre over recent times – and these are set to continue,” she said.

“We’ve introduced a year-round swimming trial in the outdoor pool; soon we’ll be introducing Spin classes; and we’re making improvements to provide 24/7 gym access later this year.

“While these works take place there will be no access to the leisure pool, spa and indoor changerooms, but everything else will still be open.”
