Council approves naming of Bostwick Community Centre, YMCA and Library

City Council approved naming of the new community centre as Bostwick Community Centre, YMCA and Library. Located at 501 Southdale Road West, the centre has been previously referred to as the Southwest Community Centre, YMCA and Library.

Set to open September 2018, the centre will include multi-purpose community space, indoor pool and gymnasium, double pad arena, YMCA fitness facility and London Public Library branch. The centre will have something for every ability, age, and life stage.

Bostwick Community Centre, YMCA and Library is located within the Bostwick Planning District and is in keeping with the naming of other recent community centre projects. The project is a joint venture between The City of London, YMCA of Western Ontario and the London Public Library.

YMCA membership sales and on-site facility tours will begin August 13. Schedules will be posted online.

London Public Library fall programs, both drop in and registered, will be listed at online starting August 2.

The City of London Fall/Winter Spectrum guide will be available August 13 and registration for Spectrum programs will be available as of August 17 (Older Adults 55+ only) and August 20 for the general public.
