The provincial and federal governments have announced funding to renovate and expand the Kanata Recreation Centre.

The Government of Canada is investing $1.8 million through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada plan. The Government of Ontario is contributing more than $1.4 million toward this project and the City of Ottawa is paying over $1.2 million.

“Our city’s recreation centres are at the heart of our communities, with many residents using these facilities to improve their health, as well as to connect with others. The improvements being made to the Kanata Recreation Centre will be beneficial for our residents for generations to come,” said Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson.

The project is to renovate and expand the Kanata Recreation Centre and splash pad by adding new meeting and program rooms, updating the interior, installing an emergency exit stairwell to increase program capacity, upgrading the facility’s lobby by adding a customer service centre and vestibule, and improving and enlarging the nearby splash pad at Walter Baker Park.

“Investing in recreation centres promotes people’s health and well-being and builds inclusive and sustainable communities where people want to live, work and raise families,” said Kanata-Carleton MP Karen McCrimmon. “The renovated Kanata Recreation Centre will provide residents with a safe space to gather, and a splash pad will offer a place for parents to form lasting memories with their families. Canada’s infrastructure plan invests in thousands of projects, creates jobs across the country, and builds cleaner, more inclusive communities.”

“Our city’s recreation centres are at the heart of our communities, with many residents using these facilities to improve their health, as well as to connect with others. The improvements being made to the Kanata Recreation Centre will be beneficial for our residents for generations to come,” said Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson.
