Changing the landscape of sport facilities in Niagara

Canada Games Park
Walker Industries

Located next to the Brock University main campus and walking distance from the Athletes Village, Canada Games Park will be home to new state-of-the-art sport facilities. These facilities will include the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre, consisting of a sport performance centre, a health & well-being centre, a twin-pad arena, a 200m indoor track, sport offices, and a multipurpose fieldhouse that will feature a parasport gymnasium and a combative sport centre. Six competition beach volleyball courts, a cycling and storage pavilion, and a 400m track-and-field facility will be located outside of the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre. After the 2022 Games, Canada Games Park will be open to the community and provide opportunities for all, regardless of age or physical ability.

In recognition of a generous $3-million donation gifted on behalf of Walker Industries and the Walker family, the 210,000 square foot sport-and-recreation complex at CGP was named the Walker Sports and Abilities Centre, along with the entry plaza found right outside the facility, which will be known as the Walker Founders Plaza.

The Walker family are fifth generation owners of Walker Industries, a 134-year-old Niagara institution. The family has a rich history of philanthropy and generous giving in this community, which has included a $5-million donation for the Walker Family Cancer Centre at St. Catharines hospital, a $1.5-million gift to Brock University and $1-million towards the Walker Family YMCA in St. Catharines.
