Local seniors are getting a dedicated workout space. The Township of Algonquin Highlands is getting ready to re-open the Dorset Recreation Fitness Centre, after doing some renovations and upgrades.

New equipment, new flooring, an aerobics area and renovations were all added. An upgrade to the change room showers was also done to help with accessibility. It cost around $35,000 to do, and a federal grant paid for $25,000 of the cost.

The ribbon cutting is happening at 12:00pm on June 1st, and the facility will be free to try from June 2nd to the 8th.
