The Garden City is pitching in $10 million for the Canada Summer Games infrastructure plan.

This includes the construction of the Sport and Ability Centre with a twin pad arena. It will be located on the Brock University campus.

St. Catharines City Council approved the conditional investment at their meeting Monday night.

The conditions are based on contributions from upper levels of government, Brock University and the development of an operating agreement and model which will need Council's stamp of approval.
