Residents of Gardena will have access to a host of incredible on-site amenities including a yoga studio (featuring smart workout mirrors for guided classes), cross training studio, indoor and outdoor spa, and a private treatment room. To complement these amenities, the nearby Bettie Allard YMCA offers an additional 55,000 square feet of amenities for Burquitlam residents to enjoy.

The Bettie Allard YMCA was developed to meet the fitness and community needs of thousands of Burquitlam residents, providing access to a variety of activities and resources. This YMCA includes a running track, swimming pool, studios for fitness classes, a cafe, and a rooftop terrace, amongst other features. 

The Bettie Allard YMCA offers diverse programming, including a range of fitness and swimming classes for all ages. At the gym and fitness center, attend strength, spin, circuit, Zumba, and yoga classes, regularly scheduled each week. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for just a relaxing stretch or a full-on sweat. 

Register online to join badminton, soccer, and basketball teams, or take part in the newest sporting craze: pickleball! There’s even a climbing wall where kids and adults can get their climb on. 

Distinctly family-oriented, the facility even offers classes for the littlest members of your family. Family playtime takes place in the morning, and again in the evening. This is the perfect way for kids to develop essential motor skills and grow their communication and sharing skills. Little ones can even learn their water basics in the junior pool classes. 

Coming with the Bettie Allard YMCA is 2.25 acres of new parkland, including an expansion of Cottonwood Park and a redesign of Burquitlam Park. Residents can enjoy ample new green space for running, biking, or walking the dog. Then, they can hop on the nearby SkyTrain and explore the many surrounding areas of greater Vancouver. 

The Bettie Allard YMCA is just one of the many reasons Burquitlam is a wonderful community to call home. With the area developing into an impressive urban centre, there is no better time to immerse yourself in this neighborhood.
