Community Centres

Our Community

The City of Unley is a vibrant network of Neighbourhoods with plenty to offer its residents and visitors.

This program aims to help you make the most out of living in the City of Unley area, by connecting you with the many community services and activities provided by your local Community Centres.

The City of Unley 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.
