The City of Weyburn gave a presentation on the new Recreation and Culture Centre to be built in Jubilee Park and connected to the new elementary school building.
The design has two floors with a combination of art facilities and sports facilities including rooms available for community groups, businesses and organisations to use for meetings.
Matthew Warren, Acting City Manager, City of Weyburn, is looking forward to seeing construction start.
“We can’t wait to have it started. Right now we are looking at for construction in October this year with September 2020 for completion.”
“The big thing for us is to make sure that we have more than just a facility for sport and recreation, we want to make sure there are culture and art opportunities as well.” He explained Signal Hill Arts Centre will be amalgamated into the new facility and showed where the Art rooms and equipment will be in the designs.
The switch from Signal Hill to the new recreation centre will happen upon completion of the project in 2020.
In the building plans there is a running/walking track on the second floor to allow for all-year-round accessibility to runners and walkers. A large gym suitable for indoor sports is also planned on the main floor.
The art rooms will be on the main floor including messy rooms and kilns for clay projects. There will also be a commercial space for a coffee shop and concessions.
Hockey players using the new outdoor hockey rink planned will have access to the changing rooms to change in the warmth.
State-of-the-art training rooms are planned where people can practice batting, hockey and other sports indoors also year-round.
