Sparwood Poolside Concession looks forward to serving community

Residents of Sparwood will now have a new dining option with Sparwood Poolside Concession.

Residents in Sparwood will soon have another new dining option as Sparwood’s Poolside Concession prepares to open its doors. Owner, Kari Allardice is excited and looking forward to presenting the community with some great new menu  options as well as some old favourites.

Having officially taken over on  the lease October 1st, the Poolside Concession has delayed its grand opening due to ongoing updates  which will allow safer, faster and better patron service. “This is something I have always wanted to do,” explained Allardice. “It seems like I am always down here, my kids are always down here and I love the atmosphere of the Recreation Department in itself. I am really looking forward to being able to provide the community with great dining options that are fast and fresh,” she says.

Highlights of the Poolside Concession menu will be vanilla and chocolate soft ice cream, great burgers, homemade fries, fresh fruit and veggie trays, subs, sandwiches, soup chili and much more. “Things are really going to be different here, from what people are used to. The portions will be more suited to individual servings and some of the prices will be lowered to reflect that. Most of our fresh fruit and produce will be purchased locally and we will have great, fast and friendly service,” says Allardice.

The Poolside Concession will have several birthday party packages and  pre-ordered lunch options available as well as opening the arena concession during special community or sporting events.

With a grand opening date expected to be on Monday, October 29th, the Poolside Concession will be open to the public during the hours of  Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

 “I would just like to extend a big thank you to the community for their patients while we have been gearing up to open. I am really looking forward to seeing many new and familiar faces as well as providing Sparwood with a great new menu,” she says.
