Friday morning community leaders including MPP Rick Nicholls and Mayor John Paterson celebrated the opening of the new $1.4 million community amphitheatre at Seacliff Park.
“The amphitheatre is a great addition to the Leamington Waterfront. This is all thanks to the hard work of the Municipality of Leamington, and I’m very proud to be part of such a vibrant community as it continues to improve itself,” said MPP Nicholls.
This on the waterfront venue will showcase music, movies and entertainment.
“Building this venue has been a dream of mine for many years,” said Paterson. “And to see it come to completion and put in use is exciting. It is something I hope our residents and our local artists will be proud of and to showcase what the arts have become in Leamington.”
