  • The Wellington Advertiser - Close to 2,000 attend grand opening of new recreational facility
    residents have a high quality of life Richardson said He mentioned other projects such as the splash pad in Rockwood and said the new recreation facility in Marden is the culmination of Milne s efforts Mayor Chris White and councillor Doug Breen agreed most of the credit should be given to Milne They also said local volunteers who helped raise almost 500 000 towards the township s portion of the cost also deserve praise It was like they were waiting for something to participate in White said of the community There was such a pent up need for this The importance of the new building goes far beyond just sports White explained it is hoped the facility will help rejuvenate the Marden community which received a large blow when its local public school was closed about eight years ago And the mayor added for the first time since amalgamation residents from former Guelph and Eramosa townships will have the chance to play together as a township Milne said the idea for the building first developed over two years ago when the township began to develop a master plan for the park in Marden The township was clearly lacking an indoor recreational facility he explained but it was through consultation with various user groups that the final vision began to take shape Noting that aquatics and hockey arenas the type of facilities usually sought after in municipalities throughout the county and beyond are much more expensive to operate Milne said the township instead chose to building something that appealed to all demographics It was something nobody else had in the county Milne said Much of the facility s primetime rental slots are already filled and White said the building should over time become a source of township revenue Vol 43 Issue
