The centrepiece of the local sports and culture offering as well as headquarters for the Town’s community services, the sports and community centre will offer just about everything to just about everybody, all under a single roof. It will be an unprecedented meeting place for Townies of all ages and a modern, functional environment for learning and for leading a healthy lifestyle.
The first entirely new municipal building to be constructed in Mount Royal in more than 50 years, the new centre was designed following extensive consultations held to align the project with the community’s needs. Among other things, it will mark the end of the scattering of recreational facilities and venues that has occurred over the decades.
The new centre will quadruple the indoor space that the Town can provide to citizens for recreational activities and community gatherings. The state-of-the-art building will also give the Town its first-ever indoor aquatic complex (with three pools) and a large gymnasium for year-round team sports.
In August 2020, Town Council announced a major financial commitment by the Rossy Foundation that will allow an underground parking facility with 117 indoor places to be added to the project, with 65 above-ground places available at Town Hall.
The launch of the call for tenders for the construction of the new centre is expected for the fall of 2020.
