1966 — The Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre is built and becomes an essential part of the Upper Lonsdale community.


Darwin breaks ground and begins development on Lonsdale Square, signaling a new chapter for this storied site, and kicks off the redevelopment of the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre by the City of North Vancouver.


Lonsdale Square takes shape next to the future Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre, bringing renewed energy, activity and amenities to the area; anchored by a community plaza and a new, fully programmed 1-hectare city park.
