Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre

Take the Survey

How do you want to get active, be creative, swim, skate, play and connect with your neighbours at the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre?

Take the Magnetic North Van survey by March 2nd, 2018, to share your ideas about what role this exciting new facility could play in our community.



In July 2017, Council provided direction for further planning of the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre (HJCRC), which is to be located on the north side of 23rd Street between Lonsdale Ave and St. George's Ave. (See links below for previous studies and reports). Consultant teams HCMA Architecture and Resource Planning Group have now been engaged to proceed with detailed space programming, schematic design and site planning. In addition, the City is working with various consultants to undertake a transportation study, environmental review and cost analysis.

Consultants will also be engaged shortly to assess the relocation of Flicka Gymnastics and the North Shore Lawn Bowling club to the proposed Mickey McDougall Community Centre site and adjacent field.

Concurrent to the schematic design phase for the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre, a development process for the lands South of 23rd Street is fully underway, which will assist in the financing of the new recreation centre. A rezoning application has recently been submitted by Darwin Properties with rezoning approval to be sought in Summer 2018. For more information visit:

These concurrent processes will converge in Summer 2018 when both the financial capacity of the land development south of 23rd Street and a more refined cost of the new community recreation centre are known. A final decision as to the direction for a new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre will be known at that time.
