Meeting the Need

To meet the needs of recreation and athletics, an emerging concept proposes creating two distinct areas for facilities.

Collectively, the identified needs would be met in two distinct athletics areas through: 

Recreation Needs

Spectator Needs

A few of these considerations include: 

  • Meeting long-term recreation and athletics needs 
  • The important cultural and heritage value of War Memorial Gym and Thunderbird Stadium 
  • Using UBC’s land wisely

The two distict areas for athletics and recreation facilities presents exciting opportunities for UBC, as well as many complex issues where tradeoffs will need to be considered and balanced. The Recreation area options focus on War Memorial Gym and its surrounding area and the Spectator area options focus on Thunderbird Stadium and surrounding area (See map below).
