Anticipated Projects

pool Parksville Aquatic and Recreation Centre Project
At the February 1, 2021, meeting, Council released the “Parksville Pool and Multiplex Facility Feasibility Study” along with background, reports, timelines, and stakeholder engagement results, available on our public engagement platform, Let's Talk Parksville. The first step in a complex multi-year process, the report summarizes the feasibility and benefit of a multi-use aquatic centre in Parksville and shows Despard Avenue as the test site.
  • Aquatics - six lane, 25 metre swimming pool, separate leisure water with zero entry, therapeutic swim channel, hot tub and play amenities/spaces.
  • Community recreation centre multiplex with public and multi-purpose space designed to meet flexible community needs and accommodate small, medium and large public events.
  • Gymnasium and indoor fitness track, roof top amenity.
  • Accessible change rooms.
As soon as it is safe to do so, in-person community engagement will be held. In the meantime, we look to online engagement opportunities and encourage residents to share comments, ideas, ask questions and signup for project updates through Let’s Talk Parksville. Comments may also be emailed to letstalk@parksville.ca.

During phase 2, the community will be asked to finetune the concept presented in the feasibility study. Based on this input and results of studies and assessments, we expect substantial changes to the concept. We will engage a consultant to facilitate community involvement and provide final detailed design and cost estimates for construction of the project and its operations. When design, cost estimates and potential grants are determined and prior to construction, electors will be asked for approval to borrow through a referendum.
