The Future New West Aquatics & Community Centre

Welcome to the future New West Aquatics and Community Centre website – the source for information as we explore ways to build on the rich sporting tradition of the Canada Games Pool (CGP) and Centennial Community Centre (CCC). These facilities are an important part of active, healthy living in New Westminster, and their replacement has been identified as a key community priority.

Community Update – April 2019

Building on the programmatic recommendations and feedback received from the 2018 public engagement process, the project team (HCMA Architecture + Design and their consultant team) along with New Westminster City staff, have been working to further refine the program space and architectural design.

The project team is approximately halfway through the design work for the project, currently concluding the schematic design phase and moving next into the design development phase. The project is pursuing two design options for the new facility: a community recreation facility that is consistent with the results of the community engagement process; and a design option that includes community recreation components included in option 1 with augmented competition components. The second design option is contingent on the City of New Westminster successfully obtaining significant senior government grant funding.
