Delbrook Community Recreation Centre receives Advisory Design Panel Award

Congratulations Delbrook Community Recreation Centre! The new facility is the recipient of an Award of Excellence from the District of North Vancouver Advisory Design Panel. The annual awards are presented to encourage excellence in design and recognize projects that significantly contribute to the built environment of the District of North Vancouver.

The new community recreation centre replaces two of North Vancouver’s aging recreation facilities, consolidating the services of the old William Griffin and Delbrook facilities into one modern recreation centre. The project is constructed on the site of the old William Griffin Community Recreation Centre.

The design was inspired by the objective to integrate the facility into its natural surroundings and emphasize a connection to the outdoors, a characteristic of the mountainside community. Three public art installments are incorporated throughout the site, all of which reflect the essence of North Vancouver.
