Learn about the new Newton Community Centre (“NCC”). It will be a vibrant, inclusive, and accessible facility that will enhance recreation, culture, and library services to the growing Newton community.

With a budget of $310.6M, this state-of-the-art facility will be the largest community centre in the City at approximately 190,000 square feet (17,650 square metres). 

Work is underway to retain a design and construction team to deliver the NCC. Renderings of the NCC will be available later this year, with groundbreaking in 2025.


The NCC will be located on the east side of King George Boulevard, south of the existing Newton Arena and next to the Newton Seniors Centre, and near local transit services. 


The NCC will include a 50-metre swimming pool, leisure pool, hot tub, and sauna amenities comparable to those available at the Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre. The NCC will also include two full sized gymnasiums, fitness centre,  mat-room, multi-purpose rooms, child-care, and dedicated arts spaces to support a range of cultural programming. 


The NCC will include a new 45,000 square feet (4,180 square metres) library, which is approximately three times the size of the existing Newton Branch. The library will feature the latest resources, technology, and flexible spaces for the community to gather, connect and learn. It will include an early learning play area, dedicated youth spaces, quiet and collaborative study areas, and a large collection to meet the needs of the City’s diverse community.
