Launching May 17, 2024, the new Assembly Park location will offer nine pickleball courts and one padel court with free membership and no initiation fee. The club is available to all ages and levels at an hourly rate, and will also have a coaches’ corner, community events, and branded merchandise for purchase.

“In the last few years, we’ve seen a cultural shift to activities that offer more social and emotional value,” said co-founder of Fairgrounds Drummond Munro, also co-founder of Superette. “Fairgrounds fosters community by providing social spaces for experience seekers through the power of sport. As padel gains traction in Canada and moves into the cultural mainstream, we want to introduce it to more people in an inclusive way that everyone can enjoy.”

The launch kicks off a full slate of summer activities hosted at Assembly Park over the next few months. Assembly Park is more than just a gathering space—it’s a vibrant community hub designed to bring people together, cultivate creativity, and build lasting memories.

“Assembly Park continues to make its mark on Vaughan community with exciting on-site events and activations,” said Chrystal Burns, Executive Vice President, Canadian Retail, QuadReal Property Group. “With the success of the Cloverdale location, we are thrilled to meet the demand for padel and pickleball through our partnership with Fairgrounds that reflects a shared vision of creating spaces that enrich the social fabric of the community.”

The addition of Fairgrounds allows for community members to give shape to a perfect day and a meaningful life in Vaughan’s creative district. More than a cultural destination, Assembly Park is a soulful community constructed on building blocks of creativity – poised to reimagine the way we live, work, play and come together in a diverse urban centre.

“Assembly Park is a thoughtfully designed community located in the heart of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC). Since launch two years ago, we have integrated with local partners to activate ongoing programming for both residents and visitors to Assembly Park. We are so proud to continue developing this incredible project and invite both Vaughan residents and visitors alike to witness Assembly Park evolve and transform into a hub of creativity,” said Jay Claggett, Senior Vice President, Development, QuadReal Property Group.

Fairgrounds co-founder Matt Rubinoff, also founder of Stackt Market, adds, “What better place than an innovative cultural mecca like Assembly Park. It’s a 15-minute city that provides easier access, more health and wellness for people and the environment, and allows less commuting and more community. The concept is made for Fairgrounds’ values and mission. Thanks to QuadReal, we have the perfect location and partner.”
