Clarington allocates space for recreation programs in Bowmanville
With the creation of tourism hubs and information displays in Clarington’s community centres, the municipality is now bringing events and attractions to a central location popular with residents and visitors alike, said a notice.
“This has allowed Clarington to temporarily close the Tourism Information Centre while investigating how to repurpose the building for community use,” the notice said.
Clarington staff are proposing to use the building and surrounding green space for a variety of recreational programs that are needed to support the growing demand and population in Bowmanville.
The outdoor space will be used for a variety of activities throughout June to support Recreation and Parks Month and is an ideal location for the Mobile Playground Program offered by Community Services.
Indoors staff have opened up the building making an open and functional space to support a variety of programs, including preschool, babysitting courses, youth arts night, yoga class, nutrition workshops, and 55+ programs.
