"Shape Your Space: Newton Community Centre"

About the Project

We are developing a new multi-purpose community centre in Newton for residents to socialize, exercise, learn and play. It will be a place where the community can enjoy a fun, inclusive, and healthy environment.

The new state-of-the-art community recreation centre will be on a 6.5-acre site at 6965 King George Boulevard. The multi-phase facility has the potential to provide expanded aquatic, cultural, library, and recreation opportunities to the Newton community.

    The City of Surrey has begun construction of the Newton Community Centre.

    Surrey, B.C. – The City of Surrey has begun construction of the Newton Community Centre. A groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 14 marked the occasion.

    “I am thrilled to be breaking ground for the Newton Community Centre,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum. “Early roadworks have been completed and work has now begun on this new public recreational facility. The Newton Community Centre will be a hub for Surrey residents, offering services and programs for all ages to enjoy. Council recognises the importance of providing opportunities for recreation and competitive play. That’s why we have invested $428 million through the ‘Surrey Invests’ Capital Program to build high-quality facilities and amenities throughout the City.”

    The initial construction of the Newton Community Centre will include a 10-lane 50-metre swimming pool, leisure pool, hot tubs, sauna and steam room, fitness centre, licensed childcare and multi-purpose spaces. A future phase of development is anticipated to include a library, multipurpose gymnasium and culture amenities. The project is also being designed to allow for the integration of additional amenities to meet growing community needs.

    The Newton Community Centre will be a sustainable facility designed to the most stringent energy performance standards, such as Net Zero Carbon and Passive House. This inclusive and universally accessible facility will embrace the diverse cultures of Surrey and will be designed to meet the vision and goals of the City’s Sustainability Charter.

    This project was approved in the 2021 Five-Year (2021-2025) Capital Financial Plan and is among more than 20 projects included in the ‘Surrey Invests’ Capital Plan. Learn more at surrey.ca/capitalprojects.
