Today, the City of Mississauga, along with MLSE Foundation, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, Rotary Club of Mississauga West and Peel Living opened the newly constructed multisport court at Springfield Gardens located at 3570 and 3590 Colonial Dr. Officially named the Ridgeway Community Courts, the space serves the recreational and sporting needs of more than 300 local-area youth weekly.
“It is wonderful how the Ridgeway Community Courts have brought youth together. It is a shining example of the importance sport can play within the community,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We’re grateful to our funding partners for their continual support of community-based sport projects. These projects have had a long-lasting impact in many Mississauga neighbourhoods and we are proud to add the Ridgeway Community Courts to our city’s legacy.”
To help with the construction of the court, the City received two grants:
- $225,000 from MLSE Foundation and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities
- $50,000 from the Rotary Club of Mississauga West
