YMCA, Perry Park
The YMCA Perry Park has had its official opening in July 2012, unveiled by Hon. Steve Dickson, MP Minister for National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing. The Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk also spoke about the YMCA centre and the activities and programs the centre will offer.
Located in Brisbane's inner northside, the new centre overlooks the Strikers Soccer fields and 7 large fig trees, all adding significant constraints to the project. The YMCA building includes a full gymnasium, multi-purpose courts, gymnastic hall and adjunct care facilities, with approval for future office space. The gym (opened to the public in April) already has over 1,000 members.
