Town Council Advances Design for the Peach King Centre Expansion and Renovation

Town Council has progressed a major milestone in the Peach King Centre (PKC) Expansion and Renovation with the approval of the project’s schematic design. This key advancement sets the blueprint for the site and building, marking an exciting step forward as a visual representation of what is to come for this highly anticipated project.

The design reflects the culmination of months of development and refinement to maximize the functionality, user experience, and value for the residents of Grimsby. Not only will the new facility provide enhanced indoor amenities for recreation, the exterior site will be reimagined to enhance green space, walking paths, and improve pedestrian access and enjoyment.

“This milestone marks a critical step forward in the PKC Expansion and Renovation and reflects Town Council’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the well-being of our community,” said Mayor Jeff Jordan. “I look forward to seeing the project take shape to provide Grimsby residents with a true community hub that is welcoming and inclusive to all.”

The approved schematic design includes several key features that will transform the PKC into a state-of-the-art community facility:

  • New indoor sport and recreation space: Featuring a double gymnasium, walking track, fitness centre and fitness studio.
  • New and enhanced community spaces: Attractive lobby and passive spaces, multi-purpose rooms, youth area and reflection room.
  • Enhanced green spaces: Redevelopment of the PKC and Town Hall site to expand access to green space through walking trails and parking reconfigurations.
  • Renovations and Accessibility Improvements: Investments in west pad change rooms and improved indoor and outdoor site accessibility.

The PKC Expansion and Renovation was initiated following the 2019 Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan that outlined the growing needs for community recreation space in Grimsby. With over $16 million in support from the Province of Ontario, this $36 million project is a landmark investment by the Town of Grimsby to support community health and wellness.

Construction is expected to begin in the Spring of 2024 with a target completion date of Summer 2025. More information about the project, including designs, renderings, and a resident survey are available now @
