Changes are coming to Sherwood Park's recreation facility.
Due to some wear and tear, the Millennium Place gym will be closed until the end of August for floor resurfacing.
"August is actually the slowest time for the gymnasium, being that more outdoor activities are available," said Leah Gregg, assistant facility supervisor at Millennium Place. "It does take a bit of time as we must prep the space and then pour the surface,"
The gym was built in 2011 and can host many sports such as floor hockey, basketball, badminton, pickleball, volleyball and more.
"Over time, we had added some extra lines with the addition of new sports like pickleball, so we've created an opportunity to remove unnecessary lines that we're not using and provide a cleaner, less confusing surface," added Gregg. "In the section that used to house our indoor playground, we've actually removed that playground and we're going to be adding some courts that are miniature size for kids to play on."
Strathcona County's goal is to have the facility open for August 31.
