The $14 million dollar redevelopment of the Warragul Leisure Centre has netted the council a $1,000 top prize at the National Sport Convention.
Baw Baw’s site was one of three finalists in the Facility Design and Development category.
“This award is such a well-deserved achievement, congratulations to everyone involved during the 17 month project,” Baw Baw deputy mayor Mikaela Power said in a media release.
“The Warragul Leisure Centre has become a fantastic environment for the community and definitely ticks all the boxes by encouraging people to get active and create lifelong healthy habits.”
A council spokesperson said the awards “aim to recognise projects that encourage people to be active and provide them with the opportunity to play, recreate, keep fit and participate.”
