City of Playford – John McVeity Centre

The John McVeity Centre opened and was immediately met with enthusiastic community participation and acceptance.  The Centre is named after the first Mayor of the City of Munno Para who was a keen proponent for quality community facilities. This successful start follows a committed effort by City of Playford staff, the design team, lead by Hardy Milazzo, and the construction team.

The facility is managed by YMCA South Australia in consultation with the City of Playford. The Centre comprises two indoor courts, a new gymnasium and fitness room, a multipurpose community room, a café, outdoor exercise park and seating, new amenities and changing rooms, and a crèche.  Sustainable design principles were at the core of the design approach and have resulted in an efficient and memorable community facility.

The success of the project has been demonstrated by the enthusiastic community support the complex is already experiencing – a testimony to the achievement of our aspirations.
