Orillia Breaks Ground on Facility Years In the Making

Rec Centre On West St. Expected To Be Completed By 2018

It’s been a long time coming, but Orillia today broke ground on their new rec facility. The brownfield-turned-construction site at 255 West St. was hotly debated by a few terms of council, with the project contract finally awarded in August. The site will boast an aquatic centre, fitness space, gymnasium, preschool facilities, and office space, once it’s completed in the summer of 2018.  City council and staff were on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony around 10:00 this morning.
