Funding for New Dryland Training Facility at Centennial Arena

Fairview-Clayton Park MLA Patricia Arab is welcoming funding towards a new dryland training facility at Centennial Arena.

The project is receiving $100,000 from the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage through the Recreation Facility Development Program.

“It is important that our communities remain connected and vibrant and provide facilities that help people make physical and community activity a part of their daily lives,” said Patricia Arab, MLA for Fairview-Clayton Park. “These types of investments are tied to Nova Scotia’s Culture Action Plan and support the outcomes in the strategy.”

The Centennial Arena is looking forward to finally celebrate the ground-breaking ceremony for the addition to the arena, which is expected to be complete in the Spring of 2018.

“This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Centennial Arena and it’s an exciting time to be adding this much-needed addition for our community,” said Emily Fougere, President of the Centennial Arena Commission.

Along with the Recreation Facility Development grant, this project also received support from the community and HRM.
