News Jul 11, 2019 Stoney Creek News

The City of Hamilton has finalized the timelines in advance of the $8.1-million rehabilitation of the Valley Park Community Centre and library.

The community centre will close for the renovation project on Sept. 3. The library — located in the same complex at 970 Paramount Dr. — will remain open until Oct. 1.

Library and community centre construction work is expected to be complete by fall 2021. A materials drop box will be available for customers looking to return items while the new branch is constructed. The Hamilton Public Library is also exploring options for a temporary location to continue library services during construction.

Valley Park Community Centre, which includes recreation and meeting room spaces, an indoor pool and arena, was last renovated in 1990. The city says mechanical equipment has reached the end of its service time, requiring a renovation to the building and its inner workings.

The renovations will include expanded recreation programming space, a new reception desk and common areas, roofing replacement, exterior cladding and block repair, and parking lot resurfacing.

No ice season closures are anticipated in the arena, which will remain open throughout the duration of the project.

The following recreation centres have increased programming to accommodate swim lessons and recreational program activities during the closure:

• Hill Park Recreation Centre — 305 Southbend Rd. E., Hamilton

• Huntington Park Recreation Centre — 87 Brentwood Dr., Hamilton

• Sir Wilfrid Laurier Recreation Centre — 60 Albright Rd., Hamilton

Library customers are invited to access library services and materials by visiting other area branch locations during construction, including:

• Turner Park Branch — 352 Rymal Rd. E., Hamilton

• Red Hill Branch — 695 Queenston Rd., Hamilton

• Sherwood Branch — 467 Upper Ottawa St., Hamilton
