Construction continues Dixon Hall’s new youth centre in Regent Park

If you frequent the Regent Park neighbourhood, you might have noticed a construction site at Wyatt and Nicholas Avenues. This isn’t just any new development – it’s the future home of Dixon Hall’s youth centre, an extremely important space for young people in our community. We broke ground on the project in fall 2018 and have been working diligently on the facility ever since.

 
Most recently, our construction partner, Cambria Design Build, has completed exterior cladding, windows and doors, and now are completing interior work including drywall and electrical installation. We anticipate construction will be completed in early 2020, at which time our Children & Youth programs and our Music School will move into their new home. Annually, we serve nearly 1,000 youth through both departments.

 
The youth centre will include an expanded kitchen, several multipurpose rooms, recording studios, a jam room, and a fitness room. We’re excited to engage more young people in our community with increased opportunities for mentorship, sports and recreation, and music programs. We’re especially excited to enjoy the beautiful new facility, including its big windows and abundant natural light, a welcome change from our current locations. We’re so grateful to all of the donors who helped make its construction possible. To find out more about our new youth centre visit: www.dixonhall.org/youth-centre
