OSHAWA, ONT. — A new multi-use community centre is being constructed in the north end of Oshawa, Ont., expanding the city’s recreational offerings and providing residents with closer access to community resources such as the Oshawa Public Libraries and Oshawa Senior Community Centres 55+ (OSCC55+).
The new facility will be located at the northeast corner of Thornton Road North and the future Britannia Avenue West extension. It will include new branches of the OSCC55+ and Oshawa Public Library in addition to facility features that will be determined from upcoming community engagement and input from city council.
The need for an additional recreation facility was one of several recommendations from the Parks, Recreation, Library and Culture Facility Needs Assessment, approved by council in November 2015, indicates a release.
“We look forward to receiving input from Oshawa residents of all ages, user groups and community stakeholders, including Indigenous communities, on facility amenities including a dedicated space,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter in a statement. “These conversations will further enhance our extensive recreation, learning, and creative options offered by the city and its partners for years to come.”
