Transportation Group Walking Track
The North Dumfries Community Complex also has a walking track around the upper area of the skating rink. The walking track is open when the building is open (see hours above) and anyone is able to come in and use the track at their leisure. Thanks to some funds raised and the Trillium Grant, the flooring was finished with an appropriate soft walking track surface to make use easy and safe. The track is 200 metres per lap and provides an excellent, dry and warm place to exercise any time of the year.
Splash pad & Soccer park at the Community Complex
The North Dumfries Community Complex has a fully functioning Splash Pad and Soccer Park equipped with washrooms and a concession booth. The Centre for Community Group raised funds to provide our Township with this wonderful addition to the North Dumfries Community Complex facilities.
The splash pad is open all summer and at no cost to those wishing to use it.
The splash pad is open daily from 9am - 8pm so stop by with your family to spend the day outside.
The North Dumfries Community Complex is sporting a new set of playground equipment (Above Left) along with a brand new splash pad (Above). There are also new soccer fields as seen to the left.
The North Dumfries Community Complex is also home to a large community garden located at the left side of the North Dumfries Community Complex. Families and individuals have taken up plots to grow vegetables and flowers in the community garden. Currently featuring 10x10 plots, the community garden is in its first year showing much success.
There will be further plots available in future and possibly some changes to plot size and function, depending on how the first year goes. For further information the community garden rules are available by clicking here.
The amenities that any gardener needs are being made available to those who use the community garden. This includes a watering system that collects rain water from the North Dumfries Community Complex roof, which is then transferred to a tank located directly next to the garden for use. There is also a shed going in to hold the primary tools of gardening and even a raised gardening plot in the area.
Thanks to the community members who have donated so much time and resources to make this a hit!
Cafe, Rooms & More
The NDCC also contains the Breakaway Cafe, a concession booth on the second level of the arena, above the ice rink. The hours vary and the cafe is only open during hockey and skating seasons.
