“By developing our communiplex we will create a recreational heart for Melita’s Community”

A facility that is home to all of Melita and Area Community members with amenities
from the youngest to the oldest. A facility that can become a community centre for ice users, swimmers, walkers, fitness enthusiasts, parties, and many more community events.  This building contains a skating surface, curling surface, board room, gymnasium, fitness room, walking trail route, 2 licensed canteens, Lobby with sitting area as well as a pool viewing area.  



The Melita and Area New Pool Committee was formally organized in 2004. This committee surveyed the community to gather input from local citizens. The results ofthe survey and discussions indicated that the area, curling rink and pool should consolidate efforts to develop a multiple use facility. The cost and time frame required to complete such a large project was more than the Committee was prepared to do all at once. Thus, it was decided to consider the project in phases. Phase 1 concluded with the completion of the new pool which opened in the summer of 2008. Follow the Enns Brothers Place on Facebook.
