Doon's community centre expansion


About the project

Doon Pioneer Park is a thriving community along the southern edge of Kitchener. The DPPCC was built in 1989 and designed to serve the 7,200 residents of the community at the time.

Since then, the population has grown to over 20,000. The centre's expansion is necessary to continue providing programs and services for the increased population of children, youth, and adults and to meet the growing needs of the community.

Council approved an expansion for DPPCC in 1999, and although competing capital projects have delayed the project in the past, the centre underwent an expansion in 2018 and new features new amentities to better serve the Doon community. 

New Features

We heard through our consultation with the public how much people valued the community centre and that the top priorities for the renovation were expansion of the gym, more or bigger meeting rooms and more or bigger space for people to gather with friends or neighbours.

The Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre has been expanded to have:

  • An additional large program room
  • A new large gymnasium
  • Additional meeting space
  • Spacious lobby and seating area
  • New washroom facilities
  • New spray ground
