Tag Archives: Gull Lake Recreation Complex
Gull Lake is fortunate to have many residents that volunteer their time to help make our community a better place to live. The groups, organizations, and committees they help provide our community with the facilities, programs, and events that we all enjoy.
Each month a group, organization or committee will be featured in a post on the town website. With winter now upon us our attention will be focused on our winter recreation facilities. We will start December featuring the Gull Lake Rink Board.
The Rink Board is responsible for the upkeep and staffing of the entire recreation complex: rink, bowling alley, and hall. The Board orchestrates fundraisers, from smaller raffles to the big Trip of the Month draws, to bring in extra revenue in order to keep rink fees as low as possible.
Recently, the Rink Board renovated the bathrooms in the bowling alley, and organized, supervised and helped with the replacement of the boards and glass on the ice surface. Future plans include replacing lighting and overhauling bathrooms, dressing rooms and the kitchen within the rink.
Members of the Rink Board are:
Richie Bleau (Chairman)
Brendan Jones (Vice Chairman)
Diane Brown (Treasurer)
Town Council extends a big thanks to the rink board members, staff, coaches, and volunteers who help with the operation of the Gull Lake Recreation Complex.

The Gull Lake Bowling Lanes have undergone substantial renovations this past summer and is open to the public.
The bowling lanes have been apart of the Rec-Plex since it first opened around 25 years ago, and Chair of the Bowling Association, Craig Baird, says it’s all ready for action.
“In the past few years we have seen a decline. We just renovated the entire bowling alley this past summer, and really the cost of the bowling alley is quite low compared to the rest of the Rec-Plex,” says Baird. “We repainted the entire bowling alley, we fixed up a bunch of baseboards and things like that, and we also completely renovated the bathrooms, so there’s all new bathroom fixtures in there, all new flooring, just to really spice it up and make it look a lot better. It was starting to show it’s age for sure.”
Public bowling is open every Wednesday from 7-9pm for $2 a person per game, and is also available for party rentals.
