Have your say in the future of the Cambridge Recreation Complex as the city hosts information sessions starting on Dec. 6
The Cambridge Recreation Complex will have a multi-purpose room and the city is looking for the public's input on how to use it.

The city is hosting information sessions on the new Cambridge Recreation Complex as they look for feedback on design and concept plans. 

In four separate sessions the city will be asking members of the community to give their opinions, ideas and help shape the future rec complex. 


These sessions will start on on Dec. 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Preston Idea Exchange then Dec. 7, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hespeler Idea Exchange. The following week there will be two final sessions on Dec. 13, from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. in a virtual session via Zoom, and then Dec. 14, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Kinbridge Community Association. 

The new recreation complex will be built in the south end of the city near the intersection on Dundas Street South and Branchton Road and will feature a 10 lane, 25-metre swimming pool and warm water leisure pool, three FIBA gymnasiums, a running/walking track and fitness area, multi-purpose rooms, Idea Exchange library branch and park amenities.

The total cost for the complex is pegged at $108 million.

Construction is anticipated to begin in July 2024, with an expected completion date of fall 2026.
