In 2006 Tract Consulting Inc. completed a Recreation Master Plan for the Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s.  It was very obvious from the wants and needs of the residents of the community that an indoor recreation facility was high on the list of recommendations for the consultants.  In the original Master Plan document the recommendation was for an Edu-Recreation Centre.  This plan involved the merging of Beachy Cove Elementary and the new indoor recreation complex, with some shared amenities.  Although the plan integrating Beachy Cove Elementary did not work out, the main concept of the education/recreation facility is still at the forefront.

A concept plan has been prepared by Tract Consulting for a Lifestyle Centre.  Details of this design have not been confirmed but the concept of what the Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s is trying to achieve exists.  Please view the Lifestyle Centre Brochure for details.

A Lifestyle Centre Committee, a sub-committee of Council was formed to ensure that the project continues to move in the appropriate direction.  This committee is engaging businesses, groups, organizations, municipalities, government departments, government officials, and other individuals for support; financially and otherwise.  If you have not taken the time to review the Lifestyle Centre Brochure, please do so.  The Committee is engaging individuals to be a part of the fund-raising committee.  Residents can show their support to this project and be directly involved in the efforts.

Recently the Department of Municipal Affairs has allocated $100,000 to the planning of the Lifestyle Centre.  It is the hope of the Lifestyle Centre Committee that this financial assistance confirms government’s acknowledgement that such a facility is warranted.

The Recreation Department is very excited with the progress being made on the Lifestyle Centre.  Although progress is slow, we hope to see the centre become a reality in the near future.  Please be sure to visit this site for updates.  It is encouraged that if you have any questions or would like to make any comments, please contact the Recreation Department at the information below.
