Port Credit PARKS:
Harold E. Kennedy Park

Lions Hall, Outdoor Pool and Park

  • With Port Credit Pool reaching an age where significant capital repair and rehabilitation are required, a $7 million redevelopment is scheduled to start in Spring 2010.  There are plans to tear down Lions Hall and rebuild a smaller facility adjacent to the new 25M outdoor pool and a wade-in pool.  The tennis courts will be moved to PCSS.  Although the Outdoor Pool will be closed for the 2010 season, it will be ready for the 2011 season.  Lions Park will also be redeveloped.
