Community News Update

The Township of Carling has entered into a partnership with 5 of the other West Parry Sound Municipalities to design, build and oversee the operation of a new $32 million dollar Pool, Recreation, Wellness and Culture Centre. 

The project has received $23.4M in funding from the upper levels of government with Carling’s share being $865K. The facility is in the design stage and is expected to have:

  • At least 6 – 25 meter swim lanes;
  • A leisure pool and sauna;
  • A walking track;
  • A full-size gymnasium;
  • Weight lifting and exercise equipment;
  • As well as a number of studio spaces for yoga, spinning and other fitness activities.

It is anticipated the facility will be operated by the YMCA of Simcoe Muskoka and memberships will allow users to access any of the YMCA’s in North America.
