Hampton Park Community Centre Upgrade Complete

2 April 2024

The Victorian Government is providing crucial community infrastructure and delivering results for communities and councils through the Growing Suburbs Fund.

Member for Narre Warren South Gary Maas MP, recently visited Hampton Park Community House to celebrate the reopening of the newly upgraded neighbourhood centre on 28 March 2024.

Funded through $938,000 from the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and a contribution of $34,000 from Casey City Council, the $972,000 upgrades deliver better recreational spaces for community-based services, programs and activities.

The community house provides locals with upgraded and fit for purpose facilities, including child toilet amenities fitted with change tables, an enclosed veranda and new flooring in the playroom, as well as landscaping.

The upgrades will enhance child safety and family well-being, meeting the needs of the growing community.

The Growing Suburbs Fund represents a $435 million Victorian Government investment over nine years to provide critical local infrastructure. 

The Victorian Budget 2023-24 provided $10 million in funding to continue supporting the infrastructure needs for our fast-growing outer suburbs and regions and is administered by Office for Suburban Development.

Since its establishment in 2015, the program has supported 360 projects representing a total infrastructure investment of approximately $1.3 billion and has created over 11,340 jobs.
