    The pool can get a bit crowded, and the workout room is small, but it does the job. The front counter staff are touch and go. Some are polite but others that I have encountered seemed upset that they had to stop their conversations with each other to help me check in. It is centrally located for those living in the Metrotown area. If you are looking to get back into a physical exercise regimen at an affordable price, this is a good place to start.

    Spent several years doing my elementary swimming lessons here. Prices for drop in are also quite reasonable. Though older, facilities are pretty clean and decent.

    We like it as a good place for kids to learn and enjoy. It hosts a variety of activities. Have not used the swimming pool yet.

    The complex has a swimming pool, squash courts, table tennis, a fitness/workout area, and a variety of classes / summer camps. Good facility!

    Enjoyed my time at this center. Definitely older but still a good time. Pool is usually a little crowded and there is usually a short wait for the showers.

    Decent place, but wonky random court rules that constantly change with no real reasoning behind the changes or the rules. The whole place has a make busy vibe directed down on staff from management. I get that some rules are required, but really half of the ones imposed made no logical sense, increased client effort, decreased client satisfaction, and often intruded on the time clients pay to be there for. Crossing my fingers things seem to be slightly better this time around, but who knows what random new rule will pop up for a week or three to shatter that.

The Environmental Sustainability Strategy (ESS) is a plan for Burnaby’s “green” future. It is the third – and completes the trilogy of – sustainable city policies, environmental, social and economic. The three-phase process used to create the ESS engaged over 2,500 people and collected over 8,000 ideas. The process was extensive, inclusive and creative and the response from the public and stakeholders has been overwhelmingly positive, setting a solid foundation of community support that will help to ensure the future success of the ESS.

The 16 “Big Moves” and 25 “Quick Starts” within the approved plan will be the City’s focus for the first wave of implementation for the ESS. The ESS also contains ways for you to take action in support of the 10 goals of the ESS.

The ESS process has demonstrated that the environment is important to our community. It represents our community’s vision for a great future. By working cooperatively with the support of all our citizens and partners, together we can achieve the vision and goals of the ESS.
