Construction on a community park will begin in July, while work on a community centre and library will begin this fall or spring 2023 in north Oakville.
Representatives from Diamond Schmitt Architects, MBTW Group and Gateman Milloy Inc. joined politicians for a ground-breaking ceremony at the site where a community park is scheduled to open in 2023, followed by the community centre and library in 2024.
“Council and I are excited that the next phase of the community park portion of the future community centre, library, and park in north Oakville is beginning and that residents will be able to enjoy the outdoor spaces next year,” said Mayor Rob Burton.
Located just north of Neyagawa Boulevard and Dundas Street, the expanding community park and outdoor spaces will feature two additional lit sports fields, cricket field, skateboard park, bike pump track, splash pad, children’s playground, fieldhouse and washroom facility.
The community centre and library will connect to the existing Sixteen Mile Sports Complex and will feature flexible, multi-use spaces offering a variety of programs and services for all ages and abilities.
The 65,000 square foot multi-use community centre will include aquatic facilities, fitness/active living centre, flexible multi-use space to accommodate seniors, youth and cultural programming and gymnasiums.
