The Kenmount Terrace Community Centre is now open to the public. Facility details are available on the Recreation Facilities page of the City's website.

The "What we Heard document" on programming for the Centre and Park is available here.

A Kenmount Terrace Community Centre Master Plan was released in April 2015. The plan falls within the context of the City’s Parks and Open Space Master Plan. The Kenmount Terrace plan called for a new community centre and park within the Kenmount Terrace development area as well as a neighbourhood park on Ariel Place.

The project is cost shared equally between the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the City of St. John’s.

The public engagement process began in 2015 and included the creation of a public steering committee, a public workshop and survey, focus groups with elementary and junior high students, a skate board focus group, social media campaign, and an online survey, followed by the release of a “What we Heard” document. In February 2017 the City updated the community on the plans and design of the new park at two information sessions.

Thanks to everyone for the input provided so far. The Discussion is now closed. We will be assessing all of the valuable feedback received to make decisions concerning the programs and services that will be delivered from this area.
