The bridge on Kennedy Road that has often been repaired is getting completely replaced. That means that starting this week and for an estimated 3 months, Kennedy Road will be closed between Mount Albert Road and Doane Road.

Just in time for the busy season, we have finished several major renovations! First, the showers and toilets in the clubhouse have been completely renovated.
