The work will take place in stages during the daytime, and the facility will remain operational at reduced capacity throughout. The upgrades include surface paving, additional lighting, concrete repairs, a new bus pad and bike racks. Directional signage will guide pedestrians during sidewalk repairs.

Update via Councillor Shad Qadri’s office:

The upgraded paved surface of the site will hopefully allow for an improved customer experience, by eliminating mud and puddles while delineating accessibility and other spaces with pavement markings.  The number of parking spots will also be increased, from approximately 115 spaces to approximately 150 spaces.

For convenience in the meantime, users are encouraged to park at Canadian Tire Centre, Terry Fox or Eagleson Park and Rides. For more information on these please visit here –
