Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre building exteiror

The Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre is undergoing rehabilitation to increase energy efficiency and improve accessibility and safety.

Project Update - Fall 2023

The Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre is currently closed for rehabilitation. 

Construction started in fall 2023. The asphalt repair is complete and interior rehabilitation work continues. In December 2023, Infrastructure Canada announced more than $2.3 million in funding for this rehabilitation project through its Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program.  

Project Overview

The Northgate Lions Seniors Recreation Centre is undergoing rehabilitation. The rehabilitation requires a temporary closure of the entire facility, which is anticipated to reopen in summer 2024. 

Rehabilitation work includes building interior improvements and parking lot renewal to increase accessibility, sustainability, safety and usability throughout the site and building.

The project scope includes:

  • Updates to the mechanical and electrical systems, including the replacement of the hot water distribution system in the original building section, installation of direct digital controls on the HVAC system, addition of a new condensing unit on the roof, and replacement of electrical fixtures and panels
  • Replacement of the front exterior and interior entrance doors, as well as the front entrance elevator
  • Replacement of the shower flooring in the men's locker room and the bi-parting accordion partition
  • Restoration of the asphalt outside of the main entrance (bus stop)
  • Replacement of the skylights and the roof hatch

We understand the impact of the closure on users. The rehabilitation work is necessary to extend the building’s life cycle so users can enjoy the centre for years to come. The City of Edmonton is committed to restoring the places where Edmontonians thrive and connect.  

We have worked closely with the North Edmonton Seniors Association to provide options for programming locations during the rehabilitation work, and look forward to continued partnership in this facility.
