Sparwood plans to revamp Leisure Centre grounds

The District of Sparwood is asking for the public’s help in deciding how to improve the grounds surrounding the Leisure Centre.

Leisure Centre staff held workshops with community members in June to determine what the main priorities for the site were. Based on the workshops, as well as the District’s vision and objectives, three concept plans for the grounds have been created.

The end goal of the project is to enhance the Leisure Centre site as the community’s central recreational and outdoor social hub. Each concept takes into account the importance of year-round recreation, sports, social events, and park activities in an appealing setting. While each concept has a different layout, there are several key additions in all three, including an ornamental garden, event space, picnic area, outdoor fitness equipment, and a skate park.

Sparwood is holding an open house forum from now until September 17 to give the public a chance to weigh in on the options. Details and maps of each concept and the project itself are available on the District website, along with an open house form for residents to fill out.

Feedback will be accepted until September 17, at which point the District of Sparwood will review all input from the community and create an official plan for the site.
