The aim of Trott Park Neighbourhood Centre is to respond to the health, welfare, individual and community needs of adults and children.
We achieve this by facilitating a fun, diverse and accessible range of social, recreational and educational activities and programs that develop personal growth, encourage wellbeing and a sense of identity and community.
Join our mailing list to receive regular newsletters and/or information on a wide range of programs and services.
Filling in the Blanks is an open ended program that is here to help 16-25 year olds engage with our neighbourhood centres in ways that speak to them. Whether it is via programs that entice, learning skills that enhance or simply meeting like minded people, we hope engaging with and promoting our younger residents involvement in community spaces makes Marion better for all of us!

The City of Marion recognises that community gardens contribute to the wellbeing of communities and provide diverse health, social, environmental and cultural benefits. In particular:
Community gardens have the potential to connect communities, build friendships and provide a recreation and educational resource for all age groups.
Community gardens enable people to pursue horticultural activities in an urban environment and can be particularly valuable in medium and higher density areas where people may have limited garden space.
Community gardens provide an opportunity to grow food in an environmentally sustainable way and contribute to addressing food security.
The Trott Park Community Garden Inc is a place for everyone to meet, to learn, to grow and to enjoy their rewards.
Adult Community Education (ACE) provides adults with a wide range of non-formal, accredited learning opportunities.
