The grand opening of the York Recreation Centre will be this weekend, starting at 2 pm. John Tory will be there for the ribbon cutting at 3:30.
The York Rec Centre is open, and it is a 67,000 square-foot sunlit marvel.
The facilities include two swimming pools (one for toddlers), a weight room, programming space, a lovely gym, and an indoor track. It’s gorgeous and, even though it was opening weekend, surprisingly quiet.
The centre is open from 7 am until 10 pm, and entry and all programs are entirely free.
