Exhibition Park multi-purpose rec facility

Attended an open house held by Exhibition Park regarding their plans for a new recreation facility. (Summary document here, indexed: 100624 Exhibition open house – summary doc.)

I wasn’t able to capture the imagery at the open house but they seem to have mapped out the proposal extensively. Issues such as flooding have been considered and dispositioned.

Key questions for me include:

  • What is the demand for additional recreational facility capacity, given that overall Saint John appears to be above the benchmark (albeit the Ontario benchmark) for recreation?
  • Who exactly is being asked to fund this, and for how much?

Overall, the proposed facility looked exceptional, and I’m looking forward to seeing this develop further.
