About the Meridian Community Centre
After more than 25 years in the making, the inaugural Meridian Community Centre project has begun! The Centre will serve as a community hub for residents of all ages, offering a wide-variety of recreational, social, health and community activities for many years to come. Seniors, youth, and families alike, will be able to gather and enjoy each other’s company, while building lasting community connections.
The Meridian Community Centre will unite surrounding communities with state-of-the-art recreational facilities, community rooms, and performing arts spaces to inspire the growing region to greater cultural heights. Sports teams, theatre and arts groups, service clubs and artists from the surrounding area will be drawn into the heart of Pelham, allowing us to share our rich and vibrant community culture with the larger region.
“Seniors will be able to make use of the centralized walking track, friends and family will be able to cheer their champions on from the upper viewing decks, and teens will able to build positive relationships by participating in any number of team sports,” explained Pelham Mayor, Dave Augustyn. “Residents can also look forward to exciting events in the Centre’s multi-purpose spaces, from concerts and dinners to bridal shows, art exhibits, and even the Mayor’s Gala.”
The Centre is also dedicated to welcoming all residents, by ensuring that the new facilities are fully accessible. The building itself will be featured prominently in the newly designed public square, part of the award-winning new East-Fonthill development along Highway 20 and Rice Road.
