The Province has announced it’s investing more than $18 million to expand the Chris Gibson Recreation Centre in Brampton.

The renovations will include updating the existing space inside the facility to make it more accessible, maintaining the current amenities, including the ice rink, pool and racquetball courts, as well as the addition of a full-sized gymnasium.

This multi-purpose infrastructure project is intended to both strengthen communities in Brampton, as well as create jobs and facilitate the Province’s long-term economic recovery goals.

“We welcome today’s infrastructure announcement by the Government of Ontario at the Chris Gibson Recreation Centre,” Mayor Patrick Brown said in a news release.

“These renovations will give residents access to a more modern recreational facility where they can come together to maintain healthy and active lifestyles. Our recreation centres continue to play an important role in our community,” he continued.
