Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre: World class in our backyard

Recent months have seen Morningside Avenue transformed by the CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Aquatics Centre and Field House, the largest sport new-build for the Games and the largest investment ever in Canadian amateur sport history.

The Aquatics Centre has three pools - an olympic-size swimming pool and dive tank with spectator gallery and a second olympic size pool with a movable bottom. The Field House will have a climbing wall, fitness facility, running track, and four gyms that can be separated or joined as one large space.

Scheduled for completion in July 2014, there will be a trial use period from September to May 2015, before closing for the Games and some retro-fit. In 2015, the new facility will host the aquatics, fencing and modern pentathlon components of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. It also has offices for the Canadian Sport Institute of Ontario, Own the Podium and national and provincial sport organizations.

When the last Pan Am and Parapan Am medals are given out in 2015, the new centre will shift from hosting the international community to hosting UTSC students and our local community as a world-class, multi-use athletics facility. It will be co-owned by the University of Toronto Scarborough and the City of Toronto.

The complex will offer a vast array of recreational and personal fitness programming. Activities will range from traditional swim and dive instruction to underwater hockey, inner tube water polo and even SCUBA certification training.
