Delbrook Community Recreation Centre

A Multi-Faceted Facility Succeeds on a Challenging Site  

The new Delbrook Community Recreation Centre replaces two of North Vancouver's aging recreation facilities, consolidating the services of the old William Griffin and Delbrook facilities into one modern recreation center. The project is constructed on the site of the old William Griffin Community Recreation Centre.

The site presented several challenges, including stream setback issues and preserving the existing uses for the site. Mosquito Creek, a salmon-bearing stream that flows through a treed area with walking trails, is located on the west side of the site. An existing artificial turf field also had to remain operational during construction.

A multi-faceted project, it includes:

  • A 25-meter, six-lane pool
  • A leisure pool
  • Racquet sport courts
  • Fitness center
  • Gymnasium
  • North Vancouver Recreation Commission offices
  • Artificial turf field
