City of Timmins Aquatic Centre Feasibility Study

The City of Timmins is undertaking a Feasibility Study for a new Aquatic Centre in Timmins!

Sierra Planning Management along with partner CS&P Architects has been retained by the City of Timmins to develop the Aquatic Centre Feasibility Study. This study builds on the recommendations of the 2014 Recreation Master Plan.

The main focus of the project will be to determine the best option for an Aquatic Centre – either in the form of a new aquatic facility or the replacement/renovation/expansion of the existing Archie Dillon Sportsplex pool facility. As a secondary task, the team will also seek to determine, at a high-level, the opportunities for the potential future expansion of the aquatic facility to create a comprehensive multi-use centre.

The anticipated completion date for the project is early 2016.

Get Involved!

Timmins’ Aquatic Centre Feasibility Study will involve consultation with a range of sector stakeholders (community groups, public, private, not-for-profit) as well as the public in identifying current needs, issues and priorities as it relates to developing an Aquatic Centre in the City.

The project will employ a range of means to gather public input including a series of public consultation sessions.

Join us for the FINAL discussion session!!

What: The consulting team will be presenting recommended concepts for a new aquatic facility.

Where: McIntyre Auditorium (85 McIntyre Road, Timmins)

When: Wednesday, June 22, 2016 – 6pm-8pm


This project recognizes the importance of long-term planning consideration for an integrated, multi-functional building as part of the potential future build-out of the Aquatic Centre. The discussion will center on space opportunities, needs and other important considerations relevant to any plans for investment in recreation infrastructure. Our team envisions a vibrant and interactive session! Your input is important.
