About this project
The new Confederation Park Community Centre will be a focal point for Burnaby’s growing northwest quadrant, bringing together existing facilities and providing new and improved spaces forarts, fitness and recreational activities. The Burnaby Public Library McGill Branch (built in 2001) and the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool and Fitness Centre (built in 1992) will be retained and form part of the new complex. The Confederation Community Centre for Seniors (built in 1971 and expanded in 1988) will be replaced with new, modern facilities inside the new centre.
The new 3-level facility will be built adjacent to the pool and library at the corner of Willingdon Ave and Albert St, and will feature:
- gymnasium and locker rooms
- fitness centre with weights and cardio equipment
- dedicated seniors’ facility with snooker room
- childminding, indoor play area, youth lounge
- multipurpose and meeting rooms
Outside, the site will feature extensive landscaping and public space, and a dramatic linear gateway plaza that will lead people from the street through the complex and into the park.
