Work doesn’t stop recreation complex activities

The project includes a new bridge at the main entrance, improved accessibility to the centre and an expanded lobby.

Recreation programming and activities are in full swing despite extensive renovations at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

The auditorium, Dogwood Gym, Halina Seniors Centre and the aquatic centre are all open and not affected by the project.

“All the regular daily activities are still taking place and the centre has been busy with summer kids’ camps and swim lessons,” said Doug Ross, director of recreation services.

The project includes a new bridge at the main entrance, improved accessibility to the centre and an expanded lobby.

Additionally, a new outside patio and food kiosk are anticipated to be completed by spring 2016.
