Sport & recreation
Indigo Shire Council is committed to health and wellbeing in the community by providing access to leisure and recreation facilities and services that respond to the cultural, social, recreational and demographic diversity of our community.
Indigo Shire provides a range of indoor and outdoor sporting and recreation facilities for both residents and visitors that cater for a broad range of needs. There is something for everyone, no matter what age or ability. You can fly a kite, have a picnic, go bushwalking or perhaps try an exercise or craft class at one of the community centres.
There are parks, playgrounds, sporting fields, bushwalking tracks and guided walks that provide a relaxing and fascinating outdoor experience around the Historical Shire.
The Youth Centre in Beechworth provides recreational facilities for young people, including table tennis, pool tables and foosball. The nearby skate park is perfect for skateboards, bmx bikes, scooters and blades.
A Recreation Plan was undertaken in 2008 that identified seven key focus areas for Council in relation to recreation:
- Refining Council's role
- Planning to meet increased demand
- Diversifying swimming opportunities
- Encouraging walking and cycling
- Making recreation accessible
- Marketing and information
- Maximising the value of the existing infrastructure
