The City of Edmonton and the Mill Woods Seniors Activity Centre announced the opening of the Mill Woods Seniors & Multicultural Centre a few weeks ago.
The $10.3-million project was funded largely through the Government of Alberta’s Municipal Sustainability Initiative, which provided $8.2 million for the centre. The City of Edmonton and partnership funding provided the remaining $2.1 million.
With over 23,500 square feet of space including a large multi-purpose program space, three program rooms, a games room and full kitchen and dining area, the centre can host a variety of multicultural organizations, community groups and non-profit organizations. The Mill Woods Seniors Activity Centre will also provide programming for seniors. Activities will include music groups, exercise programs, quilting and arts and crafts.
“We’re thrilled to have this space dedicated to seniors’ programming and multicultural groups,” says Terri Martineau, President, Mill Woods Seniors Activity Centre. “Having it above the new library makes it a central space for all residents to enjoy the many amenities now being offered.”
