New Possibilities at the Lyttelton Recreation Centre

LytteltonRecCentre

Project Lyttelton and Christchurch City Council will be working together to reinvent the Lyttelton Recreation Centre. The focus of the centre will be wellbeing in its broadest sense. Project Lyttelton and the local council governance team share a vision of a vibrant community centre where people of all ages, from all parts of our community feel at home, a place which is truly “our place”, is accessible, warm and offers a diversity of programmes, events and short- and long-term tenants.

What does this mean for the local community?

It means we want to hear your ideas about what you would like to see happen there.

The centre will continue to be a place people can come to for recreation (sports, yoga, martial arts and so on) as well as being a base for Plunket and the Toy Library. However, it also has the potential to offer so much more to the community.

If you have ideas, questions or contributions you would like to make, you can do this in person – email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make a time, fill in our survey online or come and see us at the info stall at the market on Saturday 11am - 12 noon up until Christmas.
