The City is planning to build a new aquatic and multi-use community centre on the Davisville Junior Public School site. The facility will include two indoor swimming pools and several multi-purpose rooms to serve various community needs. This facility is part of a larger community hub project that combines education, recreation and social activities to support a rapidly growing community.

  • April 2022 to June 2024: Construction phase

The timeline is subject to change.

About the Project

The new Davisville Aquatic Community Recreation Centre will be located on the Davisville Junior Public School site, near Yonge Street and Davisville Avenue. The aquatic facility will be a separate three-storey building located west of the school, facing Davisville Avenue.

The partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) will allow for a shared-use of the space. The school will have access to the aquatic facility’s swimming pools and the City will have access to the school’s double gymnasium, ancillary space and parking garage outside of school hours to support City recreation programming.

A covered walkway will connect the Davisville Aquatic Community Recreation Centre to Davisville Junior Public School as well as an underground tunnel connecting the school’s parking garage.

The facility will have new accessible amenities to support an array of dynamic recreation programming for pre-school, child, adult and older adult groups and include the following components:

  • Indoor swimming pool for lane and leisure swim programs
  • Indoor leisure tot pool with an entry ramp suitable for water play
  • An aquatic viewing area
  • Gender-neutral change rooms and washrooms
  • Multi-purpose program rooms and community space

Davisville Junior Public School is currently under construction. The construction of the aquatic facility will begin once the school is complete.
