Tell the City of Burnaby what you want from new rec centres

Survey and pop-up events seeking input from residents

The City of Burnaby wants your input as it plans for a new recreation centre in the municipality’s northwest. 

The city launched on Monday an online survey asking residents what kind of facilities and programs they want. The survey, found at burnaby.ca/yourvoice-newburnaby, will be open until Sept. 30.

The city will also have two pop-up events providing you an opportunity to provide feedback directly to staff on Wednesday, Aug. 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Willingdon Community Fair at Willingdon Heights park and on Thursday, Sept. 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool and Fitness Centre.

“This is about making sure your needs are top of mind as we invest in new facilities,” Mayor Mike Hurley said in a statement. “Let's build great places for people to exercise, create and connect with neighbours. Your input will help make this happen.” 

The city says the survey will help it plan for the future of community centres and city facilities in the area of the city north of Highway 1 and west of Kensington Avenue. 

The city is in the consultation phase of plans to replace the Willingdon Heights Community Centre and add a new recreation centre next to the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool.
