Burnaby Lake Aquatic & Arena Facility

BLAAF aerial

The City of Burnaby plans to replace the aging CG Brown Pool and Burnaby Lake Arena facilities with new aquatic and multi-sport arena facilities on the same site within the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex. The goal is to design the best-possible facility to meet the community’s needs today and into the future.

Get Involved!

The first step is to study what’s feasible for the project site, and find out what the community would like to see in this new facility. To do that, we need to hear from you. Information gathered through a survey and events in the community will help us develop a clear vision for the new facility.

Public Survey

We want to hear from you! Share your vision for aquatic and multi-sport arena facilities at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex. The survey runs until July 7.

Designed and built in the early 1960s, CG Brown Memorial Pool and Burnaby Lake Arena have reached the end of their useful life. They no longer meet today’s public expectations for civic amenities.
The project development, feasibility and design work for the new facility is expected to take approximately 18 months, taking us through 2020. The project budget is being developed during this phase.
Construction is expected to begin in 2021, with completion in 2024.
