The Frankston Health and Wellbeing Hub at Belvedere Reserve, formerly known as the Linen House Centre, is the former training and administration base of the St Kilda Football Club. The AFL club moved to the newly-constructed centre in 2010, signing a lease until 2059, but relocated back to their traditional Moorabbin home following the 2017 season. Since their official exit, the club continues to use Seaford in a much-reduced capacity - including its Next Generation Academy and a small number of administrative staff are also based there. The facility was built on an existing community field and includes an AFL-standard training oval, indoor court, sports recovery facilities, water therapy pool, office, community program and meeting spaces, theatrette and audio visual and digital infrastructure. Floodlighting was installed in 2018. There are also two additional ovals located at Belvedere Reserve which as well as Australian football, host cricket during summer months. The Mornington Peninsula Freeway runs adjacent to the facility.
Some two years after the Saints' exit, the Frankston Council has renamed the facility and is set to upgrade it, pitching it as a fitness, sporting and wellbeing hub, while calling for expressions of interest to get involved in the development.
