Recreation Complex History

In 2001, the Township applied for and received a grant from SuperBuild to expand our existing Recreation Complex. Included in these plans was the construction of a 200-seat capacity multipurpose building, four soccer pitches, a softball field, a hardball field, 2 beach volleyball courts and a children’s playground.

After learning that the Township would be receiving funding for the expansion of the Recreation Complex a group of dedicated volunteers formed the Recreation Complex Development Committee to steer the construction of this huge project! Construction began in the spring of 2003 and in October 2003 the Recreation Hall officially opened for business. Once the Recreation Hall was completed, the Recreation Committee applied to the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2004 and were successful in receiving funding to construct “Kids Place”, a playground structure in the middle of the Recreation Complex. Four new soccer pitches and the softball diamond were also constructed and completed in time for usage for the 2005 seasons. Two beach volleyball courts were also constructed and used for regular league play that summer. The hardball diamond saw its first game in the spring of 2006 and was used consecutively that season and onward.

In 2011, the Township was able to secure funding to install 30 mature trees, a gazebo and dugout roofs under a shade project through the Trenval Business Development Corporation.  A new north canteen was also redone through the Trenval Business Development Corporation EODP funding in 2013. This includes a much bigger canteen as well as new accessible washrooms.
