Revitalization of Woodville/Eldon Community Centre

Target Completion Date: December 31, 2022

What is this project about?

The Woodville/Eldon Community Centre Revitalization project is part of a municipal $1.5-million renovation to the ice surface, ice-making equipment, and dressing rooms. The Woodville Lions have committed to renovating the lobby, the community meeting room area, and make the facility completely accessible, including accessible washrooms, viewing area, and smooth flooring.
We have successfully secured some funding from the Enabling Accessibility Fund and the Kawartha Lakes C.H.E.S.T. Fund for this project.
The original rubber flooring in the lobby of this 40-year-old building is damaged. It does not allow good traction and therefore is not ideal for wheelchairs. This worn flooring needs to be resurfaced. We will be installing a commercial-grade porcelain tile flooring that is anti-slip, nonglare, firm, and flat with good transitions from one area to another. This replacement flooring was chosen, for its durability because power wheelchairs place excessive pressure on the flooring. It will be low maintenance and one of the best types of flooring for wheelchairs, rollators, and strollers. We need to remove the rubber from the main lobby and the vinyl tile from the community room along with the residual glue. The new porcelain tile will be installed, on the cement sub-floor throughout the lobby, washrooms, and the community meeting room. These upgrades will revitalize the facility and make it accessible for everyone.
