City of Sydney community centres will partly reopen from Monday 22 June

We’re excited to welcome you back to our community centres from Monday 22 June.

The safety of our communities, customers and staff is our top priority.

To protect visitors and our employees and safely manage physical distancing and hygiene requirements, our services and programs will initially run at a reduced level.

You will need to book a session at our centres before you attend.

This is to support the health and safety of our community members and staff.

Please book before you attend any of our centres

Bookings are limited to 45 minutes each. Check the schedule and opening days below.

Call the community centre directly or email

The community centres are available for computer access, to talk with a staff member, or to sit and talk with others during this time. Sessions are limited to 10 people at a time.

Do not attend a session if you are unwell

Please do not attend your booking if you are unwell or have any signs of cold of flu including a cough, sore/scratchy throat, runny nose, shortness of breath or a fever. If staff observe any of these symptoms you will be asked to leave.

When you arrive at the centre

When you arrive for your booking scan the QR code at the entry and enter your name and phone number or email address. You must do this each time you attend. If you don’t have a phone that can do this, ask a staff member to assist you. This is a NSW Health requirement and will be used for contact tracing purposes only if necessary.

When at the centre

  • notify staff if you start to feel unwell
  • maintain 1.5m physical distance from all people including staff
  • wash or sanitise your hands on entry and regularly after that
  • wipe down equipment that you use or touch with the sanitising wipes supplied.

Services at King George V Recreation Centre Gym

The gym is available from 7am to 2pm Monday to Friday. Sessions can be booked online.

Fees are $4.80 a visit (cashless payment only). There are no group fitness classes in the centre for now. Gym memberships remain on hold for now.

When using the gym:

  • bring and use your own towel and water bottle
  • come ready to train as change rooms, including showers, will remain closed
  • use a towel while training
  • wipe equipment down before and after use.

Gyms located within the Juanita Nielsen Community Centre and Pyrmont Community Centre remain temporarily closed at this stage.

Reintroducing activities at our centres

We are unable to take court or room hire bookings at our staffed centres at the moment.

We will re-introduce more activities and programs as we adjust our systems and processes required to meet our obligations under the relevant NSW Health order.

We continue to offer free online community programs through this transition period.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate these changes. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
