About this project
We're replacing the aging Cameron Community Centre and Library with an exciting new complex designed to meet the growing and changing needs of northeast Burnaby.
The current recreation centre and library, located at 9523 Cameron Street near The City of Lougheed Shopping Centre, has provided a variety of recreation, social and learning programs to northeast residents for nearly 40 years. During that time, the surrounding area has grown and evolved, and the aging complex is no longer keeping up with the community’s needs and expectations.
The new modern and functional Cameron complex will become the civic heart of Lougheed Town Centre and will include:
- new library
- aquatic facility
- gymnasium featuring two full-sized basketball courts
- weight room and cardio facilities
- indoor running track
- fitness studios
- multipurpose rooms
- dedicated youth and seniors spaces
- child minding and indoor and outdoor play areas
- civic plaza

What's happening now
Detailed design work is currently underway and construction is anticipated to begin in early 2024.
New temporary Cameron Community Centre and Library
The community will be able to continue gathering and enjoying recreation, social and learning programs at a new temporary Cameron Community Centre and Library location once construction for the new facility begins.
The new temporary Cameron Community Centre and Library will be located in The City of Lougheed Shopping Centre at 9855 Austin Ave and is set to open in early 2024 once construction for the new centre is underway.
The temporary location will provide space for a range of programming, activities and services until the new centre opens, including:
- library services
- seniors’ movement and social spaces
- dance and music programs for all ages
- health-focused programs
- artist and theatre groups
- arts, crafts, cards and games
- book and garden clubs
Please note that not all programs and activities, including gym and sports programs, will be transitioned to the temporary location. Patrons are invited to join in existing programs at the City’s other facilities.
We are committed to creating a connected, healthy and dynamic community by providing public facilities that encourage opportunities for social gathering, healthy living and well-being and meet the needs of our growing community.
