$39M Newmarket facility the biggest in town’s history

Painters and landscapers were yesterday putting the finishing touches on Newmarket’s $39 million, state-of-the-art recreation facility — the largest capital works project in the town’s history.

The 215,000-square-foot Magna Centre, which officially opens today, includes one Olympic-size rink, three NHL-size rinks, a 25-metre competition pool, a 21-metre learning pool, a gymnasium, indoor track and three multi-purpose rooms.

“The wow factor is something else,” exclaimed Brenda Farrell, Newmarket’s director of community services.


Free to try

  • For the next five days, residents are invited to try out the facilities free — including fitness and dance classes.
