On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the May edition of the King Bulletin.
April 21 was an historic day in King Township as we broke ground on the new Township-Wide Recreation Centre.
The centre, scheduled to be completed in 2024, will be built on the southeast corner of Seneca’s King City campus.
The project is a true partnership with the Federal and Provincial governments and local developers contributing funding towards the cost of building the centre and Seneca leasing the land to us for the cost of $1 a year for 99 years.
Once complete, the centre will be a place where King Township residents will be proud to gather for years to come.
You can read more about the centre below.
In other good news, construction of Phase 2 of Tasca Park in Nobleton is about to begin. Many new features will be added, including an off-leash dog park, permanent washroom facilities, tennis and pickleball courts, biking course, paving the trails and services for a community-led outdoor rink.
These features are being added after consultation with the community. More information on the upgrades can be found below.
As we continue shifting to a new normal, our excellent community events are returning. This includes the always popular King City Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival, which will take place Saturday, June 11. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit www.kingcraftbeerandfood.com.
Finally, on behalf of council and residents, I’d like to congratulate the recipients of our annual Volunteer Appreciation Awards, including this year’s Citizen of the Year, Michelle Frauley. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we were able to recognize their selfless acts that make King Township such an amazing place to live. For more information on the winners, including lots of photos from the event, please www.king.ca/recreation-living/volunteering/volunteer-appreciation.
Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.
Mayor Steve Pellegrini
