The Vale Health & Wellness Centre’s Walking/Jogging Track received new naming rights Monday Nov. 27/2017 in recognition of the generous donation provided by the Community of Portal Village for a 10-year term.

“The Vale Health & Wellness Centre has become a valuable part of the Port Colborne community and is used by many members of our community, of all ages and interests,” commented Portal Village owner Lester Shoalts. “Portal Village is very pleased to sponsor the Jogging/Walking Track as recognition of its importance to the residents of Portal Village and Port Colborne.”

The Vale Health & Wellness Centre opened its doors to the public in February 2013 and the Jogging/Walking track has been enjoyed by the community ever since.

“The walking track is free to access and a great way for the community to stay active year round,” said Port Colborne Mayor John Maloney. “The Vale Health & Wellness Centre is a state-of-the-art facility and we are able to keep it that way, largely in part to the sponsors who contribute to its success. The residents of Portal Village are active users of the Jogging/Walking Track and the sponsorship is greatly appreciated.”

Approximately 5 laps around the Jogging/Walking track = 1 km and 8 laps = 1 mile. The track is open 7 days a week from 6:00 am – 9:30 pm (excluding statutory holidays and ticketed/City events).
