Guelph, Ont., June 18, 2018 – Starting July 2, the City of Guelph will begin repairs of the parking lot and sidewalk at the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre, located at 683 Woolwich Street.

The work includes:

As a result of this work, the parking lot and facility will close to the public for about six weeks. The Evergreen Restaurant will also temporarily close as of June 28 at 1 p.m. During the facility closure, the City will do general maintenance work such as cleaning, painting and minor repairs.

Pedestrian and vehicular access to Riverside Residences on the Park will be maintained throughout the project and will be marked by signage. Riverside Park users are reminded to access the park via the entrance off Woolwich Street and exit using Marilyn Drive.

During the closure, recreation programming is available at the Victoria Road Recreation Centre or the West End Community Centre. Visit guelph.ca/recreation for more information. Questions about programming offered by the Guelph Wellington Seniors Association should be directed to 519-823-1291.
