Renewing Recreation in the Strathcona Regional District
Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex is more than just a building. It is a well-used recreational hub that contributes to the health and well-being of residents within the City of Campbell River, Electoral Area D and surrounding areas. It provides countless personal, social, and economic benefits to the public and is an integral part of building strong communities.
Key components of Strathcona Gardens were constructed in the 1970s. Through studies and feedback from the public, we know that the facility is aging and is in need of renewal. The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) owns and operates Strathcona Gardens. To ensure that the facility continues to meet the needs of our communities now and into the future, the SRD has embarked on a project called REC-REATE Strathcona Gardens.
The goal of REC-REATE is to renew the facility to address aging components and to deliver recreation services that the community desires in an exciting, sustainable, safe and inclusive environment.
The project is currently in the planning and design stage, with construction expected to begin as early as 2020.
