Millenium Sports Centre

44,000 sf Gymnasium and Indoor Lawn Bowling


Vancouver, BC




Francl Architects

The Millenium Sports Centre is a 44,000sf facility located in Hilcrest Park, adjacent to the Nat Bailey Stadium. Made possible by a private-public partnership, the facility now serves as the venue for both the Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics and the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club.

The site’s natural slope facilitated convenient access: the subterranean Bowls Club enjoys ground-level entry from the north, while the Gymnasium, situated above, offers its own access. Though connected by an elevator, each section maintains distinct entrances, allowing for shared or independent use by the respective associations.

The structure features a combination of glulam, steel trusses, and concrete elements which proved an economical solution to frame the building without compromising the interior space.
