Wedgewood Park Recreation Centre

Back

Park place.

The new $32,000,000 Wedgewood Park Recreation Centre is a 73,750-square-foot facility that replaces an existing facility, upgrading the recreation and fitness opportunities for its community in St. John’s, NL. Program elements will include a 6-lane lap pool, leisure pool, gymnasium, community rooms, child minding area, senior’s centre and youth centre.

Designed by CEI Architecture in collaboration with prime consultants Ron Fougere Associates, the new centre will be located within Wedgwood Park, allowing programs to continue in the existing building until the new centre is completed.

The project began with CEI’s highly regarded collaborative design charrette, which allowed for a full engagement of the project’s key stakeholders in the creation of the concept design.

Wedgewood Park is adjacent to an established residential community. Both the placement and massing of the new design is sensitive to this existing context. A new entrance to the site is being proposed to minimize traffic through the existing residential neighbourhood.

The new centre will include many sustainability initiatives, and will pursue a Green Globes rating.
