A Mississauga community centre and library that’s getting a major makeover is expected to reopen to the public within the next month or so.

Erin Meadows Community Centre and Library, located at Erin Centre Boulevard and Glen Erin Drive in the city’s west end, will open its doors once again in June complete with a fresh new look on the outside, according to a City of Mississauga online project update.

“Construction has resumed and is expected to be completed by June,” the update reads, adding the outdoor redevelopment plan includes upgrades to paving, planting, lighting, seating and signage.

Work began last August and renovations have focused on the exterior of the large building, which also includes St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary School.

City officials said work/improvements to be completed include:

  • updating entrance sign
  • new paving and improved walkway connections
  • planting enhancements
  • pedestrian lighting improvements
  • artificial turf flexible space
  • seating improvements
  • sensory garden planters

The Erin Meadows Community Centre and Library Outdoor Redevelopment project “will renew the aging landscape fronting the corner of Erin Centre Boulevard and Glen Erin Drive to improve pedestrian circulation, views and flexible use space,” Mississauga Ward 9 Coun. Martin Reid said earlier in an online newsletter to residents.

Upgrades have also been completed to the basketball and pickleball courts at the facility, according to the city.

Erin Meadows Community Centre and Library was Mississauga’s first shared-use facility. It was built under a joint partnership between the city, the Mississauga Library Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

Such agreements reduce capital costs for all partners.
