Westerner Park celebrated the completion of the ENMAX Centrium expansion with a Press Conference, and Ribbon Cutting ceremony showcasing the expansion on March 21, 2013.
The recent expansion offers 13 more luxury suites, a 40 seat club suite and an additional 1,000 seats added to the 6,000 seat ENMAX Centrium facility.
Westerner Park does not stand alone. Partners with Westerner Park in this $5.5 million project included the Province of Alberta's Community Facility Enhancement Program, The City of Red Deer, and Red Deer County.
"Westerner Park is an integral part of what makes Red Deer and Central Alberta an exciting place for people to live, to do business, and to visit," says Kent Olson, Westerner Park President, "As a community, we can take pride in continuing to work together to make our region the best it can possibly."
John Harms, Chief Executive Officer & General Manager, Westerner Park stated, "While the project took longer than anticipated to complete, the Board of Directors and staff of Westerner Park are excited to see the final result. We are confident that visitors to the ENMAX Centrium will be thrilled with the expansion which we anticipate will have a significant economic impact on Central Alberta in attracting national and international events to Westerner Park".
