Youth in the Colonial/Ridgeway area welcomed a new multi-sport court in 2016. In partnership with the Region of Peel, the court provides the neighbourhood with free sports programming.
The court was made possible by the generous support of the Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) Foundation, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities and the Rotary Club of Mississauga West.
Neighbourhood youth contributed ideas and talent to the court's design elements, such as featured artwork and the new "Ridgeway Community Courts" mural.
The courts offer access to a variety of free sports programming delivered by trained youth leaders. Over 150 youth and children attend the sport programs weekly, creating a place young people want to be.
Hub of Activity
The newly renovated Meadowvale Community Centre and Library reopened in 2016. The redevelopment project included improvements to the facility's aging infrastructure, services and amenities, including the relocation of the library from the local mall.
At 82,200 square feet, the building nearly doubled in size. The facility now features a therapy pool, teaching kitchen, green roof, reading terrace and 16,800-square-foot library.
The new building incorporates many environmental and energy-saving components and focuses on accessibility. City staff is working to have it LEED certified.
The centre was quickly established as a key community hub, attracting more than 9,000 visitors in its opening weeks.
In response to visitor feedback, the Mississauga Celebration Square team created a strategic plan for year-round programming and activities.
Introducing winter programming will enhance the visitor experience and encourage everyone to use the Square longer and more often during the winter months, creating a vibrant destination space all can enjoy.
New elements set to launch in the 2017/2018 winter season include enhancements to existing winter events such as Light up the Square, New Year's Eve and Family Day Skate.
The Square's amenities, such as the popular skating rink, are part of what makes it a premier public space in the GTA. Improved amenities will include warming facilities, upgraded rental facility and storage options for skaters and enhanced lighting and signage.
In 2016, planning kicked off for the development of a new Churchill Meadows Community Centre and park. The centre and park will create a great space for residents to get active and connect with the environment and each other.
Located on 51.1 acres of undeveloped land, the 65,000-square-foot community centre will include a triple gymnasium, program rooms, six-lane swimming pool and warm water therapy tank.
The park will include a seasonal domed artificial turf soccer field, natural area enhancements and a park pathway network.
Construction for the new facility and park is expected to start in the fall of 2017 and be completed in the spring of 2020.
