The Oak Ridges Community Centre project featured a building and surrounding landscape design intended to maximize the potential of the site by connecting a series of pedestrian and vehicular interchanges while at the same time creating a combination of recreation and naturalized landscape encompassing the facility.

In total, the community centre has 57,000 square feet of floor space and houses a six-lane swimming pool along with a 1,200 square foot teaching and leisure pool, a gymnasium, a fitness centre, an eco centre and multi-purpose program room. This project has been LEED® Silver Certified.
