Twin-Pad Arena and Library Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


The building of a new twinpad arena and library have been identified as priorities for this term of council.

The Wasaga Stars Arena is nearing the end of its lifespan and the Wasaga Beach Public Library has been identified as too small to properly serve the town's population.

Since the start of this term, staff and council have worked together to determine possible sites for a new library and twinpad arena.

On Oct. 15, 2019, following a public consultation process, council selected 544 River Rd. W. for the site of the town's new twinpad arena and library.

Work on the project is ongoing.

In July, 2021, we issued tender documents to five pre-qualified general contractors. They had until Aug. 11 to submit bids.

Council awarded the building contract to Aquicon Construction Company Ltd. on Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021.

Please share your comments about the possible sites for a new library and twinpad arena.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Of the options provided, I believe a twin pad arena and library together at 544 River Rd. W. makes the most sense from a use perspective. A multi-use facility would be the ideal building and include an indoor walking/running track as well as a full size gymnasium/basketball court with regulation baskets to accommodate the ever growing popularity of the sport in Canada. Is this something that the town is considering with the new building?

I like the idea of the twin pad and arena together. As a family that spent a lot of time in the arena and you have a few kids with you, it would be great if the child not participating on the ice had something else to do. They can go to the library and join in their programs.
