Renovations will temporarily close Mississauga community centre and library

Malton Community Centre in northeast Mississauga will be largely closed for three weeks over the holidays as renovations to the library and swimming pool are carried out.

City of Mississauga officials said in a news release today that the fitness centre at the facility will remain open during renovations, and it will be accessible via an alternate entrance.

According to the City, flooring work will be done at the community centre beginning on Dec. 18.

The pool will be closed from Dec. 20 through Jan. 14 while the Malton Library will be shut down between Dec. 19 and Jan. 2. The library will reopen on Jan. 3 while the pool will open again on Jan. 15.

Library due dates will be extended during the renovation period.

“Every effort will be made to minimize service disruption during the renovations,” the City said in its news release.

Meanwhile, major renovation work continues at Burnhamthorpe Community Centre, which is getting a new aquatics centre and new equipment-based fitness centre among other upgrades and additions.

The facility, originally built in 1974, is closed to the public during renovations, and scheduled to reopen in spring or summer 2023.

The aquatics centre will include a six-lane, 25-metre pool, warm water therapy pool and multi-purpose space for swim parties and other functions. 

The fitness centre will be equipped with cardio machines, weights and a fitness studio with wood-sprung floor.  

In Erin Mills, a $61-million upgrade is planned for South Common Community Centre.

That facility, built in 1981, will see improvements to the library, expanded fitness spaces, an aquatics centre and a new gymnasium. The library expansion will see an extra 16,000 sq. ft. added that will include multi-purpose rooms. 

The improvements are meant to meet the changing needs of the community as well as give the facility a much-needed facelift, City officials said earlier. 

Planning and consultation on that project will begin early next year and no start date for construction has been announced.
