TORONTO, Dec. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Councillor Mary Fragedakis (Ward 29
Toronto-Danforth) joined by City officials and staff as well as members
of the local community, celebrated the opening of the new rinks at
Dieppe Park (located at 455 Cosburn Ave.) with a ribbon-cutting
ceremony and community skate on the new rinks.
"The refurbishment of the building, the new rink and skating path are a
remarkable improvement to Dieppe Park and will be enjoyed for many more
years," said Councillor Fragedakis. "My thanks and congratulations go
out to the staff and community who worked so hard to make this happen."
The existing rink slab was replaced; fences, dasher boards and the
refrigeration were improved; new lighting was installed on the hockey
ice pad and the leisure skating path; and new rubber flooring and
benches were installed. The $2.4 million investment included both
interior and exterior renovations to the change room building in
addition to modification and enhancement of the existing site
landscape, asphalt and concrete sidewalks.
