"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.

Help us Shape your Space

Your input is important to help shape a place that builds on and strengthens the very best of the Newton community. Stay tuned for more opportunities to provide your input on the future Newton Community Centre.

    Please ensure that those who have physical abilities enjoy the same privileges as everyone else. The Rick Hansen Foundation is a great non profit to work with-congratulations on all the golds!@@

    Kim asked 29 days ago

    Thank you.  We're very proud that Surrey is the highest participating municipality in the Rick Hansen Foundation’s Accessibility Certification program.  It's a key priority that our facilities are accessible to all ages and all abilities.

    Would be there any volunteer work

    Rupinder Rai asked about 1 month ago

    Yes, we will are planning to have volunteer opportunities at the new Newton Community Centre. The vision for the new Community Centre is to engage with community, having opportunities to volunteer will be an important part of building engagement.   The specific opportunities will depend on the programs and amenities that are in place when the building opens. Programs that use volunteers at recreation centres include senior services, youth services, day camps, MYzone and community events. Surrey Libraries offers select volunteer opportunities, but these are related to programs, rather than specific locations.

    Is there more wheelchair accessible area we need space.

    Karaokedee asked about 1 month ago

    Accessibility is a key priority for all public buildings and spaces built within the City of Surrey.  Find out more about how the city is providing accessible and inclusive services, programs and opportunities for all members of our community including working to achieve accessibility certification through the Rick Hansen Foundation. If you haven't already, please take the survey and let us know about your specific needs. We will use information gathered to inform the design.

    Do you have basketball court ?

    Avneesh singh asked about 1 month ago

    The building will have a mix of features based on input from the community. The building will be designed so that we can integrate amenities using a phased approach over time.

    How many rooms does this multi-purpose community centre have?

    Sym asked about 1 month ago

    We don't know the number of rooms yet, as the building hasn't been designed. At this time, we are seeking input from the community on the kinds of features residents would like to see inside the building.  Please let us know what you would like to see at the Newton Community Centre, either by leaving a comment or by taking the survey.

    When are we going to get running track in Newton ? Always have to drive to Bear Creek!

    Kam asked about 1 month ago

    There are currently no plans for a running track in Newton, although a walking track is currently under construction at Newton Athletic Park. We will note that this amenity is important to you at the new facility.

    So there is money for this project. When the Clayton Heights Rec Center was being build the comminty was told there was no money for a pool. This is where things like a new swimming pool and ice rink should be build

    mona asked about 1 month ago

    The current budget for this project will not be enough for a pool as an estimated $50 million in additional funding would be required. The city is actively pursuing funding from other levels of government to secure funding for a new pool at this location.

    Newton is very large. Why put another Recreation Centre so close to the existing Recreation Centre? Why not add onto the existing Recreation Centre or choose a location that is further west so that residents in west or south Newton have closer access to a facility.

    asked about 1 month ago

    This location fits many of the site requirements and is compatible with the Newton Town Centre land use plan Its location will anchor both ends of the central business district hub with important amenities while serving both the west and east sides of King George Blvd 

     The Newton Recreation Centre (with wave pool) opened in 1987 and was expanded in 2017 to meet the needs of the local growing population.  This community has seen double digit population growth since the original building was constructed. While the recreation facility remains functional, it does not meet the city’s sustainability standards in terms of energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions. Having more energy efficient buildings ultimately reduces operating costs.
