General project information
In January 2019, City Council identified the twin arena and library project as a priority for this term. The Wasaga Stars Arena, built nearly 50 years ago, is nearing the end of its life. The library, which opened in 1994, is too small to meet the needs of our growing community. A review, including a community consultation process, determined 544 River Rd. W. as the best site for a new 117,669 square foot joint-use facility. When the new complex opens in the summer of 2023, it will include two NHL-sized ice rinks, an indoor walking track, a modern library with appropriate program space, and meeting rooms. The city is funding the $59 million investment through reserves, long-term funding and community donations.
