Bradford West-Gwillimbury Leisure Centre
The Town of Bradford-West Gwillimbury
Multi-Use Recreation Facilities
Salter Pilon Architecture Inc.
The Bradford West-Gwillimbury Leisure Centre was one of the largest multi-use recreation facilities in Ontario when it opened in 2012. The facility consists of four major components: a 900 seat NHL-sized twin ice pad facility, a pool complex including an eight-lane, 25 meter competition pool, a beach walk-in leisure pool and separate therapy pool, and a double gymnasium with community service spaces. The project included several sustainable design features, and was LEED® Silver Certified in March 2015. Both ice rinks take advantage of waste heat from the refrigeration system to provide hydronic in-floor heating.
“Aquicon was organized, knowledgable and helpful when site issues arose, and I commend the true hands-on involvement from senior leadership, which led the project to its successful completion.”
John Persano, Contract Administrator, Salter Pilon Architecture
The recreation complex’s design provides fold-down seating within its rink areas for 900 seats and 300 spectators and includes 9 accessible change rooms, a large home team room, a public skate change area, and an associated officials’ rooms. The building is intended to allow straightforward navigation, and easy access to all spaces.
