More than 200 Council owned or supported facilities are currently being used by not-for-profit sport, recreation and community organisations. These opportunities are provided so that a range of activities and programs can be offered to help benefit the community.
To help to continue to offer great programs at these facilities, Council has provided a range of tools to assist in ongoing management and maintenance of these facilities.
