Recreation and Wellness Centre
Initiated in January, 2007, a feasibility study was conducted to determine the need for and feasibility of a multipurpose community facility that can accommodate a variety of recreation and wellness facility components, and support a wide range of leisure and related-health activities and programs. The project is being directed by the Multi-Use Recreational Facility (MURF) Committee.
On February 13, 2008, a presentation of the Final Report of this feasibility study was made to Trent Hills Municipal Council.

Update to the Community - July 3, 2009
The Trent Hills Recreation and Wellness Centre Steering Committee continue to meet with a goal of finalizing the site selection and working toward a finalized conceptual design for the future facility. It is anticipated that the Centre will include an indoor pool, fitness and banquet facilities, a single pad ice rink and meeting rooms. At its first meeting the Committee agreed on a Terms of Reference and elected Dean Peters as the Chair of the Committee. The Re-Think Group along with Basterfield & Associates Landscape Architects and AECOM Architects Canada Ltd. have been retained to carry out this work and have met with the Campbellford Seymour Agricultural Society to develop a plan for the site that will accommodate all their events and activities. There continues to be discussion to determine the best way to incorporate the Campbellford Curling and Racquet Club's activities and Campbellford ball diamond into the new facility concept.
The Municipality has begun the environmental assessment process with a view to re-locating its Public Works yard to another location to provide more room for the new facility. Municipal staff has also met with a representative of the Agricultural Society to review the terms of a number of land use agreements between the two parties. As well, the Municipality recently applied for funding from Industry Canada's "Community Adjustment Fund" to construct the Field house (indoor soccer field, walking track, driving range, etc.) that is to be located near the existing soccer fields in Hastings. Membership of the committee is as follows:
Dean Peters Chair and Trent Hills Councillor, Hector Macmillan Trent Hills Mayor, Camille Edwards Trent Hills Deputy Mayor,
Eldon Petherick Campbellford Seymour Agricultural Society, Cathy Redden Campbellford Seymour Agricultural Society,
Bob Bennett Original MURF Committee, Debbie Reid Original MURF Committee, and Pete Dooher Campbellford Curling and Racquet Club.
