Built by the motivated Green Island Borough Council and Volunteers, Sunnyvale has served two generations of the Greater Green Island Community. The facility has undertaken significant redevelopment in recent years to meet the needs of the growing local community and a broader spectrum of use.

The community centre is on a program of continuous improvement (capital works) in addition to the cost of ongoing maintenance.  The board embarks on fundraising processes seeking available grants, as well as business and personal donations.

The facility has a huge catchment area and the associated clubs are home to sportspeople from throughout Dunedin. With the Green Island Senior Cricket Team winning the NZ National Club championships a number of times and producing a number of representative players, the significance of this venue for Otago cannot be denied. It is also home to a strong 500 player football club which itself has produced national representatives, is regarded as a key Dunedin football ground and is utilised by Football South for tournaments, trials and coaching clinics. The Sunnyvale Community Centre is also home to growing squash club, badminton club, futsal club and personal training classes.  With bookable onsite meeting and recreation space, the benefits of the redeveloped centre extend well beyond the local clubs and user groups.

We are also home to the Village Green Cafe & Bar, delivering first class coffee, food and refreshments.



We are home to Senior and Junior Football clubs, Cricket Club, Squash Club, and Badminton Club.

For truly great coffee, delicious gourmet pizza and a top class menu, the Village Green Cafe & Bar is a destination for the wider Dunedin community to enjoy.


In addition to our sports clubs, the community centre provides a base for Personal Training classes, children’s futsal, charity indoor space (Bouncy Castle) and bookable spaces for organisations and companies within the community.
