The Ontario government is investing more than $16 million to support the expansion and renovation of the Peach King Centre in Grimsby.
This investment will help create a fully equipped community centre with improved accessibility, a full-sized gymnasium, an accessible indoor walking and wheeling track, and a creative outdoor recreation space. The Peach King Centre will also have more gathering spaces and multi-purpose rooms for use by the Grimsby community including youth, cultural, preschool, and EarlyON spaces.
“Strong, caring, and inclusive communities are at the heart of our government’s infrastructure investments,” said the Honourable Kinga Surma, Minister of Infrastructure. “Supporting meaningful projects like this one in Grimsby will make a positive difference to the families who live in the community, while also protecting their health and well-being today, and for many years to come.”
“The expansion and renovation of the Peach King Centre will enable modern and accessible recreation options for all ages and abilities, creating a new hub for sport and active living in Grimsby,” said Jeff Jordan, Grimsby Mayor. “COVID-19 has illuminated the value and need for recreation as part of community wellness, and this exciting project will ensure ample opportunities for participation will exist in Grimsby for many years to come. We are very excited to bring this project forward, with the support and partnership of our community clubs and organizations.”
