The children’s centre will be built on Wellington Street across from Hamilton Health Sciences’ Regional Rehabilitation Centre. It will be fully accessible and include physiotherapy space, a therapeutic playground, and an outdoor wheeling track.
The facility will bring together a number of programs currently located at Hamilton Health Sciences’ Chedoke site, including:
