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.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

For the continued good health of our community and as a measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have:

  • turned off drinking fountains and barbecues
  • suspended bookings for our venues, parks or reserves until further notice.
Our playgrounds, outdoor gyms, skate park, netball courts, basketball hoops are now open and sportsgrounds are open to approved sports clubs. People should not gather in groups of more than 20, and stay 1.5 metres apart from others where possible.

Note: Playgrounds will now be included in Citywide’s Working for Victoria cleaning blitz which is funded by the State Government. Council will also undertake regular cleaning of all playground equipment and other high touch surfaces. We strongly encourage the community to still take their own precautions and practice safe hygiene. For further information on the cleaning blitz, visit Citywide's website.

Active recreation

Hidden behind the buildings of Moorleigh Community Village, sits ample opportunity for sport and recreation:

  • a sportsground (cricket and football)
  • lower sportsground with football and soccer goals year round
  • a multipurpose sports facility with cricket training nets and multipurpose goals

Multi-purpose sports facility

Opened in 2019, Moorleigh Community Village features a one-of-a-kind multipurpose facility. This facility provides cricket nets during summer and a multipurpose space in winter, for a diverse array of recreation activities.

For more information regarding the multipurpose facility, including the booking process, visit the Multi-purpose Courts and Park Facilities page.
