The ground breaking for the future Whitby Sports Complex is scheduled for today, according to a town notice.
It said Mayor Elizabeth Roy will be attending.
Council approved a $155 million budget for the complex and gave its nod to proceed to construction in July this year.
The tender was awarded to Ledcor Construction Limited.
Amenities planned at the future facility include:
- An aquatic centre with a 25-metre, 10-lane pool, separate leisure pool and 2nd floor spectator viewing area – which will make the Whitby Sports Complex home to the largest pool in Durham Region;
- A double gymnasium, with three-lane indoor walking track;
- A twin-pad arena with 85-foot by 190-foot ice pads; and
- Flexible spaces to support community programs, meetings, and arts and cultural activities.
The targeted completion date for the Whitby Sports Complex is late 2025.
