Cambridge Recreation Complex

Consultation has concluded


We are asking the community for feedback on the Southeast Galt site as a potential location for the recreation complex in comparison to the other four sites shortlisted by the Site Evaluation Task Force. We are also asking for feedback on whether you prefer a single or split facility. To view a summary of all facility and site options, see our overview table.

Facility options

  • Single Facility - Build a new recreation complex in one of the five locations with aquatic facilities, a gym, a fitness track, multi-purpose rooms and two ice pads. View details on this option
  • Split Facility - Split the recreation complex by building a new facility in one of the five locations with aquatic facilities, a gym, a fitness track and multi-purpose rooms AND expand Preston Memorial Auditorium to include a second ice pad. View details on this option

Please note that both a single location facility and the split location facility have the potential for a future second phase to include two more ice pads. These new ice pads could potentially be located at Hespeler Memorial Arena, at the new recreation complex or on other City-owned lands.
