City officially opens Warden Hilltop Community Centre
Councillor Michelle Berardinetti (Ward 35 Scarborough Southwest), City of Toronto staff and members of the community gathered for a ceremony on Saturday to officially open Warden Hilltop Community Centre at 25 Mendelssohn St. The event featured tours of the facility, program information and demonstrations.

The new centre was designed by CS&P Architects with input from the community and was built by Maystar Construction. The facility includes a double-size gymnasium, multi-purpose community room, activity/meeting room, preschool area, dance/fitness/aerobics space, teaching kitchen and a weight/conditioning room.

"In this growing neighbourhood, the new Warden Hilltop Community Centre will enhance the social and physical development of our children, youth, adults and seniors," said Councillor Berardinetti. "Once involved with community centre activities, residents are much more inclined to stay involved with their community - to contribute, to volunteer and to have a positive impact on their neighbourhood."

The innovative "green" design for the centre results in lower operating costs and a reduced environmental footprint. The facility uses geothermal heating, a high-efficiency irrigation system and movement sensors and timers that control the lighting.

Warden Hilltop Community centre is operated by the City of Toronto's Parks, Forestry and Recreation division.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
