Community Centre & Arena
The downtown Community Centre is located at 200 Doug Duncan Drive. As part of the development of the new urban park (CUSP), the adjacent Community Arena was demolished in June 2010, and the Community Centre is now about to get a facelift! Built in 1976, the Community Centre is in need of renovations to the interior and exterior of the building.
A key support element for the new urban park (CUSP) that's scheduled to open spring 2011, the Community Centre will also be expanded to include new washrooms with outdoor access and a small addition for park equipment (click for an article on the renovation plan). A public meeting was held on Monday, August 9, 2010 to give members of the community an opportunity to view and comment on the proposed renovations.
