The City of Coquitlam’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan has identified a need for a comprehensive, multi-use recreation centre to support the growing neighbourhood of Burke Mountain - as well as residents across the community. The future Northeast Community Centre is expected to open its doors by 2027, and the City is continuing to engage the community and interested and affected parties to ensure the needs, interests, values and aspirations of the community are identified and reflected in the resulting facility.

Project Updates

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback in our Phase 1 engagement from late 2019 to mid 2020 (What We Heard) and our Phase 2 engagement in late 2021 (What We Heard).

Following this public feedback and further staff assessments, the Northeast Community Centre is moving into the design phase as of August 2023. The planned community centre will include:

  • An aquatics centre with six-lane lap pool, leisure pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room;
  • Two gymnasiums;
  • Fitness centre with weight room and studio;
  • Community space including multi-purpose rooms, community kitchen, a ‘makerspace’ (i.e. collaborative working, learning and exploring space) and large atrium;
  • Covered outdoor covered space for recreation and cultural programs;
  • About 340 parking stalls;
  • Public art; and
  • A new branch of the Coquitlam Public Library. A Library Services and Spaces Study will include a recommendation for the size of the library branch to be included.

A phased approach has been introduced to spread out the capital funding requirements with the concept and detailed design work completed in 2024, site preparation and servicing in 2025, and construction in 2026 and 2027.
