Burnhamthorpe Community Centre, located on the eastern edge of Mississauga on Gulleden Drive, is undergoing a redevelopment project to improve the quality of recreational services provided to residents, while implementing higher accessibility and green building standards.
The redevelopment will include the renovation of existing infrastructure to address population growth and changing demographics in the area. It will also involve the construction of a new addition that will feature a state-of-the-art aquatic centre and equipment-based fitness space.
Due to site constraints and design requirements, the addition will be connected to the north side of the existing building, which includes the area on the northeast corner, currently occupied by the Burnhamthorpe outdoor rink. Subject to community consultation, a new refrigerated rink will be added to Gulleden Park (a park near Burnhamthorpe Community Centre) as part of the planned park redevelopment that is aligned with the building’s re-opening.

The redevelopment of the Burnhamthorpe Community Centre was informed by several community engagement exercises, including Recreation’s Future Directions Master Plan (2019), Youth Plan and Older Adult Plan consultations. Additionally, a public information session was held on the outdoor rink at Burnhamthorpe Community Centre in October 2020.
Feedback from residents who joined us at this information session was appreciated, collected and consolidated:
- Community presentation boards
- Public open house comments
