Oakgrove Community Centre was officially opened by the then Mayor of the City of Casey, Cr Wayne Smith on the 30th of November 1997.
Building improvements include the addition of a new meeting room in 2003 and then a multi-purpose room in 2004. The upgrade of the front entrance in 2006 resulted in improved access to community members with a disability and parents with prams.
As a Centre we continually strive for improvement of both our facility and the community programs that we offer. Please see our Program Guide for full details. Your suggestions for new ideas and improvements are always welcome.
