“This is a big moment on a big project,” said Luke Follwell, director of recreation and leisure services. “The Rideau Heights Community Centre and Library will help revitalize this community – giving its residents a place to meet, connect and enjoy social and healthy activities together.”

Construction has been contracted to Bourgon Construction and expected to be complete in the winter of 2018. The centre is an integral part of the Rideau Heights Regeneration plan.
