Richmond: The City of Richmond has officially launched construction of a $79.6 million multi-purpose complex that will house new aquatic and older adult centres, as well as other sport, recreation and wellness programming.
“Construction of a new aquatic and older adults centre are top priorities for our Council,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We need these new facilities to meet the existing and future needs of our growing and evolving community. This new multi-purpose complex will become a focal point for our community as it delivers a mix of outstanding services for a diverse group of users.”
The new complex, which will be located in Minoru Park, will replace the Minoru Aquatic Centre, the Minoru Place Seniors Centre and the Minoru Pavilion.
The new facility will also include program space for community sport, recreation and wellness programs formerly housed in the 50-year-old Minoru Pavilion, which has now been closed and will be demolished to provide space for the new facility.
