Emergency Pool Closure – Milliken Mills Pool

As a result of a mandatory emergency repair, Milliken Mills Pool will be shutdown from Monday July 31st to Monday August 7th.   We will re-open on Tuesday August 8th.  The reason for this shutdown is to repair a significant leak in one of the main water pipes.  It is unfortunate that the community centre has to close but necessary before the situation worsens.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Pool shift supervisor on duty at the pool desk or ext. 3328:

  • Earlybird swims from Monday to Friday – Kenny Leung
  • Monday to Friday day time – Felix Sun
  • Monday to Friday evenings – Harish Kahndavel

– Bindi Patel, Pool Supervisor, 905-477-6410 ext. 3329 or bpatel@markham.ca.

Thank you for your support during this emergency pool closure.

Streetscape Program

Thanks to our Parks Staff, we are currently enhancing the City’s Streetscape Program that has been designed to be inclusive of all Ward residents for their enjoyment. The City will be deploying large self watering planters at select, high impact intersections, throughout your Ward. The new planting enhancement will now provide floral displays at many street intersections City wide rather than being limited to the two Main Streets. This new program will allow all Ward residents to experience our amplified Streetscape beautification as we proudly celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday.
