Marino Community Hall

Marion Council has committed $3.3 million towards this redevelopment, the State Government has committed $500k, and the Federal Government has pledged $3 million to rebuild the facility.

The new facility will contain:

  • Various community activity spaces
  • Informal café space
  • A better interconnected facility with an identifiable frontage and expanded car parking
  • A facility capable of delivering a range of community programs
  • Car parking and landscaping.

At the City of Marion, we believe that our community should have access to a broad range of community facilities so that everyone has the opportunity to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

The existing Marino Hall is a well located, community facility that provides a space for various services including art and sewing groups, dance groups, martial arts, yoga and fitness and the Philadelphia Church of God. The building comprises of two halls, large kitchen and public amenities and was constructed in various stages over the 1940s-50s. Sections of the smaller hall and adjacent structures were structurally stablised in 2019 and have a medium-term stability period.

Council has identified that within the catchment area there is the capacity to increase community value through offering a further range of community services to the area.
