Centre Wellington is home to many spacious and beautiful parks and it is the goal and responsibility of the Parks and Recreation Department to ensure that each of these parks is regularly upgraded and maintained. As our Township continues to grow, the Department is continuing to develop new plans for park development, now and in the future. However, although plans are being made to upgrade our parks system further, the Department never loses sight of the importance of a natural and environmentally sound environment not only for human purposes but for our wildlife as well.
All efforts are made to ensure that Centre Wellington parks and open spaces remain as naturalistic as possible. Because of this, minimal reconstruction and landscaping of these areas is permitted. By maintaining our parks natural state, we are demonstrating our commitment to preserving our wildlife's natural habitat and in turn, are providing a more educational and interesting park experience for visitors. As well, the Parks and Recreation Department succeeds in lowering park maintenance and reconstruction costs.
Centre Wellington is home to two community centres, the Elora Community Centre and the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex as well as Belwood Hall, the Victoria Park Seniors Centre and the Fergus Grand Theatre.
