Construction of a New Gym and Other Upgrades at the Earl Bales Park Community Centre has Begun

 

We are very excited to announce that the construction at the Earl Bales Park Community Centre has begun on a number of improvements including a new gym. We were joined by Mayor Tory for a groundbreaking ceremony in June 2017. The work is scheduled to be completed by summer 2018.

The improvements will include a 50′ X 80′ gymnasium, storage room, family change room, 2 universal washrooms and a public lounge area.earl-bales-gym

The work will also include:

  • Replacing existing windows
  • New barrier free entrance doors
  • Renovating the washrooms
  • New lighting, painting and flooring

In September 2016, we hosted a community consultation to get feedback on the proposed design. The presentation from the meeting can be viewed here and we are looking for your feedback as we move forward on this great new addition to our neighbourhood.

Unfortunately the work will require that the community centre to be closed starting April 1, 2017. We will post construction schedule updates as they are available.
