  • The revamped Inala PCYC has reopened to the community.
  • The new gym includes dedicated cardio and strength areas, and meeting rooms.

The community of Inala can now enjoy the revamped PCYC gym and meeting room facilities after the completion of a year of redevelopment works.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the revamped gym is great addition for the community.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and having a great community gym does just that,” Minister Nash said.

“With the Commonwealth Games just around the corner, it would be great to see a generation of athletes start their journey here at Inala PCYC.”

Minister Nash added that the innovative improvements made to the PCYC saw the exiting hall be split into two distinct floors with gym facilities on the bottom, and meeting rooms and offices on the top.

“Instead of building an entire new building to house the new facilities, an innovative approach saw additional space created by building a new floor into the building,” she said.

“This space will not only cater for athletes and those who use the gym, it will be enjoyed by the entire community.

“The meeting rooms on the top floor can host community functions and meetings, and have room spare to be used as offices for PCYC staff.”

The construction was jointly funded between the Coalition Government and the Queensland Police-Citizens Youth Welfare Association, each contributing $794,999 and $795,000 respectively.
