We were proud to open the new Maillardville Community Centre in fall 2022. This new facility is approximately 2,000 square metres (22,000 square feet) in size and replaces the old Place Maillardville that was over 40 years old and could no longer effectively sustain the needs of the community.

The Maillardville Community Centre enhances the amenities and services offered within a scale, budget and size appropriate for the neighbourhood. The new facility offers a number of new amenities, including a teaching kitchen, combined youth and seniors lounge, dedicated children’s focused space, a gymnasium and an active studio fitness space. These amenities will allow the facility to serve more patrons with diverse and inclusive programming opportunities as the centre transitions from a neighbourhood house to a community centre, serving Maillardville as well as the broader Coquitlam community.

Next Steps

Now that the old facility has been demolished, we will be moving to design and build the park and plaza area. The proposed plans include:

  • Tiered seating for social connections and small gatherings, transforming a sloped portion of the site into social space.
  • Creative play for children through climbable rubber surfacing and a concrete slide.
  • Cultural and historic connection through a direct physical link to Laval Square, as well as timber seating elements to reference the milling and logging history of the neighbourhood and garden elements that reflect the rich cultural history of the area.
  • A future mural across the existing retaining wall at the north end of the plaza that reflects the neighbourhood’s history.
  • A social plaza with movable furniture, shade elemnts, court games and timber elements that could provide seating and/or a stage for small events or performances for up to 100 people.
  • An open lawn area for flexible, passive use such as picnics or outdoor recreation activities.

The plans also include improved lighting, electrical receptacles, landscaped buffers and parking. More information on the Maillardville Community Centre page.
