Background

In April 2009 Council approved the renovation of the former Queen Elizabeth Park high school into a community centre that would meet recreation needs as well as the space needs of Oakville’s many not-for-profit arts and culture groups.

In a 2009 staff report (pdf, 101 kB), staff provided some operating scenarios as well as a preliminary operating budget and reported that a more detailed operating plan was necessary in order to develop the best operating model. The facility's size and scope, the mix of recreation and cultural amenities and the fact that that town did not have any experience operating this type of facility coupled with the diverse needs and financial capacity of the groups presented challenges that required review and analysis. In August 2011 the Operating Model (pdf, 638 kB) and accompanying staff report (pdf, 175 kB) was presented to Council.

Queen Elizabeth Park Pool closed on September 8, 2009, as part of the planned renovation of the future QE Park Community Centre. The new community centre is expected to open by March 2012.
