On Fri., Oct. 13, the Farley Group unrolled hundreds of metres of the fabric membrane which forms the “dome” of the Russell Township Sports Dome, and inflated the giant dome bubble. Construction of the multi-use facility began this spring. The 59,400 sq.-ft. dome is located at 150 Sportsplex Rd., between Embrun and Russell villages; it includes a three-lane walking/running track, fitness gym and tennis court, and will host programs for all ages and abilities. The adjacent 3,760 sq.-ft. building includes change rooms with showers, conference room and a restaurant. The construction cost of the project is $4.5-million.      Vetter photo
