Moorleigh Community Village

Moorleigh Community Village is a vibrant facility where community groups gather on a regular basis. It also features a formal sportsground, a recreational space and a fantastic multipurpose facility.

The current community village site was originally Moorleigh High School. The Victorian Government closed the school around 1992 and sold the land to the former Moorabbin City Council. The council then built the Moorleigh sportsground in 1995 and its pavilion in 1996.
