Built to LEED Standards

The Burnside Gorge Community Centre opened in September, 2007. This award-winning building is Gold LEED certified for its sustainable design, construction and operation.

The building was built into the embankment of Cecelia Ravine Park, which allows the building to naturally use the earth's constant temperature for heating and cooling.

The centre features the first accessible green roof in BC, which provides a pleasant environment for visitors and clients. High ceilings and large windows offer natural light, with excellent views of Cecelia Ravine.

Interpretive signs highlighting the building's LEED components are displayed inside and outside of the centre.
