Live, Play, Work

The Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre is a multi-use facility providing Leamington and surrounding communities a variety of recreational opportunities all under one roof. The Centre is a place for people of all ages to gather for sports, fitness, meetings, and community events. 

Originally known as the Frank T. Sherk Aquatic and Fitness Centre, 'The Sherk' opened in 1985 and the twin pad Highbury Canco and Unico Arenas were adjoined in 2000 to form The Leamington Kinsmen Recreation Complex. A world class 179,000 square foot facility.

In May, 2020, a new partnership with the Municipality of Leamington was formed. New sponsorship and naming rights were approved for the Complex to be named the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre, in turn, helping support all the programs and activities offered at this great building.



Financial Assistance is available to ensure that all our community gets a chance to be active.

We know the places where we gather to be active, such as the gym, ice and pool here at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre, sports fields and parks, have been closed in order to support social and physical distancing. Despite these closures, physical activity is still important, and everyone should continue to participate, as they are able, for both their physical and mental well-being.
