$51.5M Planned For City Parks, Rec

Labatt Park

The City of London has applied for $21.3 million from the federal and provincial governments as part of a $51.5-million plan to upgrade and add to city parks and recreation facilities.

The City has already approved its $30.2-million portion as part of the upcoming budget, and will proceed on a smaller scale if money from the feds and Queen’s Park does not materialize.

Here’s the rundown on planned additions and renovations:

Labatt Park – accessible washrooms, bleacher repairs, light replacements $2 million
Thames Valley GC Clubhouse – accessible washrooms, conversion of clubhouse to year-round community centre $1 million
Southeast Community Centre, Arena – multi-purpose community centre with two-pad arena, gymnasium, community rooms, activity rooms, community kitchen $36 million
Silverwood Arena, Park – spray pad addition, outdoor pickleball courts, cricket pitch, community rooms, dressing room upgrades and accessibility $5 million
Carling Heights Optimist Community Centre – teaching kitchen, elevator installation/accessibility to viewing area $1.5 million
Foxfield Park – spray pad addition, artificial turf sports field, lighting, field house, washroom accessibility $4 million
Thames Park & Pool House – washroom accessibility in pool house, field house renovation, outdoor shower additions, tennis court replacements $2 million

Money from the two levels of government would fall under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program.
