Upgrades completed at Lake Country facility

The District of Lake Country received a $400,000 grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development

Lake Country’s Beasley Community Centre is open after the completion of renovations and installation of the second set of playing field lights.

The District of Lake Country received a $400,000 grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development to help upgrade the facility.  The total project cost was $620,000.

“This community centre renovation project, and the increased programming that goes with it, encourages healthy living and provides recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities,” said Mayor James Baker.

“I’ve seen some of the soccer groups out on the fields under the new lights, as well as the new activity programs being offered at the centre this fall, and I know the whole community will benefit for years to come as a result of this investment in recreational infrastructure.”

The upgrades to the centre include a new multi-use deck, new flooring, fitness system mounting, interior lighting, a new heating and ventilation system, renovate washrooms and field lighting towers and lights.

“The revitalized centre will serve the families of Lake Country by expanding the opportunities for community events and organized sport,” said MLA Norm Letnick.
