A public recreation center in Leamington, Ontario, has been renamed the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre.

Greenhouse grower Nature Fresh has been growing vegetables in Leamington for 20 years, and is helping support programs and activities at the complex, according to a news release.

“Our partnership with the recreational complex fits perfectly with our ideals of promoting a healthy lifestyle and nutritional eating,” John Ketler, vice president, said in the release. “We are thrilled to support a center that is committed to providing the community with services and programs encouraging healthy and active lifestyles.” 

The facility, which opened in 1985, has a swimming pool, ice rinks, a gymnasium, fitness studio and other services.

The name change was finalized by Leamington city officials May 13.

“As a family-run business, we understand the value of family and the importance of community facilities that help bring them together,” Peter Quiring, Nature Fresh president, said in the release. “The recreation center is the heart of a town, a place for the community to gather for sports and activities and enjoy each other’s company.”
