Lions Gate Community Centre

Located in North Vancouver’s new Lions Gate Village, the Lions Gate Community Centre is a 30,900 sq.ft. community centre with access through large sliding doors to an expansive outdoor plaza with a playground and splash pad for kids and an expansive open area for that will host concerts, events and a great spot for the public to enjoy.

Hired as construction manager by the District of North Vancouver, the new rec centre features a full-sized gymnasium with courts for basketball, volleyball, badminton and pickleball. Additionally, the new urban community centre also features an express library, community spaces, meeting rooms and a kitchen that provide for events, exercise rooms for yoga and other fitness classes along with offices for the community centre staff.

About the Lions Gate Community Centre by the District of North Vancouver

Lions Gate Village is a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented neighbourhood, with local-serving businesses, jobs, a community recreation centre, and a mix of housing options for residents at every stage of life. The Village serves as a gateway into the District, thanks to its unique location at the edge of our boundary, near Lions Gate Bridge. By building on its natural setting near the Capilano River, its easy access to transit, and its proximity to commercial properties on Marine Drive, we are creating a more vibrant and complete community.
