Delbrook Community Recreation Centre


Out with the old.

The new Delbrook Community Recreation Centre will replace 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 will be constructed on the site of the old William Griffin Community Recreation Centre.

As Prime Consultant, HDR | CEI is working in concert with the District of North Vancouver, the North Vancouver Recreation Commission, and project managers Pivotal on the facility’s design. The facility will include significant sustainability features.

The site presents several challenges, including stream setback issues and the preservation of existing uses. Mosquito Creek, a salmon-bearing stream that flows through a treed area with walking trails, is located on the west side of the site. There is also an existing artificial turf field that must remain in operation during construction.

Program elements:

  • 25-meter, six lane pool plus leisure pool
  • Racquet sport courts
  • Fitness centre
  • Gymnasium
  • North Vancouver Recreation Commission offices
  • Leased space
  • Artificial turf field washrooms
