A new recreation centre will be opening late this fall in North Vancouver.
The new Lions Gate Community Recreation Centre remains “on track” for a fall 2021 opening, although services will be offered in Spring of 2022.
The new community recreation centre is located at 1733 Lions Gate Lane in the heart of the new Lions Gate Village.
It is located in the new LARCO residential development that is being built just west of Capilano Road, between Curling Road and Fullerton Avenue.
The new centre features a full-sized gymnasium with basketball, volleyball, badminton, and pickleball. It will also have an express library operated by North Vancouver District Public Libraries.
It will also include community spaces, a meeting room and a room with comfortable seating areas, and a kitchen for gatherings, classes, and group lunches.
Office space for community service groups, such as Capilano Community Services Society, will also be included as well as a district-owned public plaza with play spaces and outdoor seating.
The front doors of the centre will face out to a new pedestrian-friendly street and outdoor public plaza, which is being built between the north and south buildings of the new residential development.
The public plaza will host programs and events, and will have areas for people to sit, to gather, and to connect with friends and neighbours.
With Harry Jerome Recreation Centre closing in December, City of North Vancouver will also move some of its programs to the new recreation centre.
