Construction Update

Parking volumes in the Cumberland parking lot are expected to increase. Please consider walking, cycling, or taking transit.

Construction Overview

The new aquatics and community centre will be built adjacent to Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre where the Sixth Avenue parking lot is currently located. This site location was selected to allow for Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre to remain open during construction. Additionally, this site accounts for other site constraints including the presence of a large diameter Metro Vancouver sewer main that traverses the site.

Safety is a top priority throughout construction. To ensure the safety of the public, we ask that everyone obey all construction signage and access facilities from designated entrances only. Please note that as construction progresses, restricted areas may change or move.

Programs & Services

Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre will remain open during construction. All programs and services will continue as advertised during the construction period.

Facility users are reminded to arrive early for lessons and programs as parking will be limited and additional time may be required to walk from alternate parking locations.

Access

Pedestrians can access the existing facilities from East Sixth Avenue near the east lawn and from Cumberland Street.

Facility users are reminded to arrive early for lessons and programs as parking will be limited and additional time may be required to walk from alternate parking locations.

We encourage you to consider alternate modes of transportation such as walking, cycling, transit, and carpooling.
