Residents Invited to Outdoor Drop-in on Redevelopment of the Burnhamthorpe Community Centre

City building | September 28, 2020

On Thursday, October 1, the City is inviting residents to drop-in to the outdoor rink at Burnhamthorpe Community Centre to learn more about the community centre’s redevelopment plan. In March 2021, the building will close to the public and undergo extensive renovations to improve recreational services, provide better accessibility and incorporate sustainable design features. The renovation will improve infrastructure and address population growth and changing demographics in the Rathwood-Applewood neighbourhood. This is drop-in only, with controlled access to ensure physical distancing. Face-coverings and masks will be required.

Outdoor Drop-In – Redevelopment of the Burnhamthorpe Community Centre

  • This drop-in is an opportunity for the public to walk through the area to see the renovation plans for the community centre. Storyboards will be spread out around the rink floor to showcase redevelopment plans for the centre.
  • There will be no formal speaking presentations or meeting spaces where people can gather.

*Health and safety precautions will be followed including physical distancing. For those interested in attending, please wear a face-covering/mask. The City is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and the public, while still keeping up communication and information-sharing on key projects in the community.

The storyboards will also be displayed in the community centre for the coming months and the information will also be available on the project website, as an opportunity to keep the public updated and answer any questions leading up to the renovation and building closure next spring.

Construction will begin in April 2021. Once completed in 2023, the community centre will feature:

  • a new Indoor Aquatics Centre, featuring a 25-metre and 6-lane therapeutic pool
  • a new fitness centre
  • an optimized multi-purpose social and recreation hub for the community
  • improved building circulation
  • upgrades to exterior building
  • improved sustainable and accessible design standards

In 2019, City Council approved the Recreation Master Plan, which included the redevelopment of Burnhamthorpe Community Centre. For more information about the project, visit
