Our community centres located at Clarence Park, Fullarton, Goodwood and Unley are easily accessible and friendly, each offering a huge array of activities for individuals, families, children and young people, older persons and cultural groups. Each Centre has its own unique history and character, shaped in part by the demographics of its neighbouring residents and the identified needs and interests of their local community.
