C.G. Brown Memorial Pool

Our main pool is perfect for swimming laps–the cardio workout for all ages

C.G. Brown Memorial Pool offers a 25-metre swimming pool and a weight and cardio fitness room. It's just across the street from Christine Sinclair Community Centre–Burnaby's newest fitness and sports centre–and not far from Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park, in the central valley, just north of Highway #1. 

Exciting changes are happening! Plans are currently underway to replace the C.G. Brown Memorial Pool and Burnaby Lake Arena with a new facility to better meet the community’s needs today and in the future.
