vincent Community Centre

Located in the busy Loftus Precinct, the City of Vincent Community Centre, formerly known as the Loftus Community Centre, sits between the Vincent Library and Local History Centre, and the Loftus Recreation Centre, which is managed by Belgravia Leisure.

A variety of programs and activities for children through to seniors are offered at the centre, including the City’s popular ‘Well and Wise’ program and other activities for seniors. There is also a range of affordable rooms available for hire by community members and commercial organisations.

Community Centre History and Change of Management

Loftus Community Centre INC managed the community centre up until 31 March 2020 and had been part of the local community for 40 years, with 30 of those years being located in the Loftus Precinct.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held 12 November 2019, Council resolved that the City of Vincent would take over the direct management of the Community Centre from 1 April 2020, following the closure of LCCI on 31 March 2020. 

The City of Vincent looks forward to welcoming old and new participants and starting a new chapter for your local community centre.
