St. Andrew's Community Centre Renewal

The municipality is planning to build a new community centre at the current St. Andrew's Community Centre site in Halifax West.

DATE: April 06, 2018

The multi-year funding plan for the construction of the new community centre at the St. Andrews site is moving forward! The stakeholder committee, in consultation with Architecture 49 are in the process of finalizing the design for the facility. The facility will be inclusive, welcoming, and an exciting new addition to our current 68 Parks and Recreation Facilities in Halifax Regional Municipality.

Once designs are complete, the public will be invited to view architectural drawings which will show more specific building elements. The architectural team will give a brief presentation on the project to date after which they will welcome questions from the public. Notices of this event will be communicated by public service announcements, the HRM Shape Your City Online Engagement Portal and signs posted at the current St. Andrews Community Centre.

Programming will wrap up at the end of May with the demolition phase starting during the June to August time period. As mentioned above, HRM is planning to continue offering its recreation programs and services where fully possible, using alternative spaces within the community as well as neighbouring recreation centres. On March 6, 2018, Regional Council approved the leasing of space in Bayers Road Shopping Centre, at 7071 Bayers Road, to be used by Parks and Recreation as a temporary space for recreation programming during the construction of the new St Andrews Community Centre. We do know that six weeks of our children’s Summer Camps will be operating from Westmount Elementary School at 6700 Edward Arab Avenue. The Youth Adventure and Summer Preschool Camps will operate out of the Bayers Road location and Youth Leadership will be utilizing both Westmount School and the Bayers Road location.
