After 35 years, the main public spaces of the Recreation Complex are showing their age. The City of Pickering has hired Barry Bryan & Associates to conduct architectural and engineering design services for renovations scheduled for 2019.   The work includes complete design and consulting services for main floor renovations of the existing main concourse, service counters, related security and accessibility upgrades, change rooms, and the exterior of our main entrance.   

We invited to share your thoughts to shape the design of the new lobby entrance and change facilities. We received a total of 445 completed surveys. See the Top 5 Results from PRC Online Renovation Survey
