Mayor Rob Burton, members of Council, and town staff were joined by representatives from Diamond Schmitt Architects, MBTW Group, and Gateman Milloy Inc. to celebrate the milestone that will first see a community park opening in 2023, followed by a community centre and library in 2024.

Located just north of Neyagawa Boulevard and Dundas Street, the expanding community park and outdoor spaces will feature two additional lit sports fields (one with artificial turf), 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.
