Waterloo Recreation Complex revisited

Parkin is the architect of record for the City of Waterloo Recreation Complex, completed in 1993. We are excited to be back at the complex, working on an expansion project slated for completion in 2021.

We’re reflecting upon the original project and how it succeeded in creating a gathering place for the community. The design comprised an exceptional range of services, providing Waterloo with a first-rate athletic facility having the feel of a community centre. It also ensured that expansion space was provided so that the facility would be able to meet evolving future needs. The complex is popular with residents and we look forward to providing this growing community with an expanded and even more enjoyable communal space.

The original design won awards of merit from the City of Waterloo and Athletic Business magazine.
