Beaumont, AB - At an event this afternoon, Mayor John Stewart (Beaumont), Mayor Tanni Doblanko (Leduc County) and Honourable Shaye Anderson (Minister Municipal Affairs) officially broke ground on the new Beaumont Sports and Recreation Centre (BSRC).
“Recreation Centre are hubs of the community, places where families gather, friends meet and children learn skills that they’ll carry with them for their whole lives. Construction of Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre will allow residents to engage in regular sports and physical activities, promoting the adoption of healthy lifestyles, and I am I’m confident that the expansion and modernization of Beaumont Sports and Recreation Centre is an important step for not only Beaumont’s future but this region’s future. We are working together to improve our whole area’s livability and affordable recreation destination for area families,” said Mayor John Stewart, Town of Beaumont.
“We will continue to collaborate to ensure we provide right services at the right time, to the residents of our community and Beaumont,” said Mayor Tanni Doblanko, County of Leduc.
Located at 5001 Rue Eaglemont, adjacent to the existing Aqua-Fit pool, the new, BSRC will have a NHL sized ice surface, indoor fieldhouse, high school gymnasium, climbing wall and suspended running track for youth.
Construction for the expansion and modernization of BSRC started on October 1, 2018, with an expected completion date in mid-July 2020. Beaumont Council approved $29.5 million dollar budget towards the expansion and modernization of BSRC.
