News

Exciting changes ahead in Doon! Long-time residents and newcomers to the neighbourhood recognize the Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre as the heart of this community. The Doon community is a thriving neighbourhood along the southern edge of Kitchener that is expected to grow even more in the coming years. The centre is a neighbourhood hub that brings friends and neighbours together over a game of pickleball, in fitness classes, through special events, programs and other activities hosted by the neighbourhood association or at the Doon branch of the Kitchener Public Library.

The community centre will undergo significant renovations so that it can continue to deliver programs and services to this growing community. Residents can look forward to a large program room, a new gymnasium, additional meeting space, new washroom facilities, spacious lobby and seating area and a new splash pad!
