Newmarket Community Urban Space
The Corporation of the Town of Newmarket

The Community Urban Space Project site is approximately 6.5 acres in size. This site honours Newmarket’s historic downtown and was designed to become a dynamic social meeting place for the community to celebrate its culture and participate in recreational and civic activities. The facility includes an outdoor skating rink, walking paths that connect to the Tom Taylor Trail, green space, and many other features.
Phase 3 work consisted of renewal of the existing community centre, which included updating of interior finishes, upgrading existing building services and facilities, construction of a 750sf addition for the zamboni garage and refrigeration room for the new outdoor skating rink, addition of washrooms, a new south entrance vestibule, and underpinning of the east foundations to house the water feature equipment room for the outdoor water feature.
The existing sloped roof was also raised, re-roofed and the entire building envelope was re-cladded.
