The centre was opened on Friday 10 February 2012, by Nillumbik Shire Mayor, Councillor Michael Young, Mr Rob Mitchell, Federal Member for McEwen, Mr Craig Ondarchie, Member for Northern Metropolitan Region, Barry Henwood from Valley Financial Services and hundreds of children from Diamond Valley College and Diamond Creek East Primary School.

At a cost of $10.5m the project would not have been possible without the generous support of our funding partners.

Nillumbik Shire Council would like to thank the Community Bank (Hurstbridge, Diamond Creek and Eltham), Commonwealth Government and the State Government for helping us to provide a facility that will be much loved by the Nillumbik community for years to come.

YMCA Victoria was appointed to manage the stadium on behalf of Nillumbik Shire Council.

The stadium is available for use by schools, local businesses and community groups who can take advantage of the community meeting space on the mezzanine level overlooking the sports courts and gymnastics centre.
