Bennett Building B6
Constructed in 1935, the Bennett was not only one of the first structures to form The Parade Square, but it was also a primary mess and recreation hall for non-commissioned members to socialize. The main idea behind the H-shaped design of this building was to reinforce rank separation for both dining and recreation activities. The Bennett Building became a multi-use structure and headquarters to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and the #1 Service Battalion in 1971. Today, the Bennett stands tall as a reminder of generations of military excellence and leadership.

Pellat Block B8

Like its counterpart buildings, it housed thousands of non-commissioned members over the years.

Athlone Building D2
At the time of its construction in 1936, the Athlone was the hub for all administrative duties in Currie Barracks. The building’s design conveys the authority of the Canadian military and the grand, formal traditions that come with it.

This single-story building constructed in 1936 was one of the first structures in Currie Barracks. While the unique K-shaped design of the Stables Building accommodated up to one hundred horses, its high ceilings, arrangement of windows and doors, and brick construction maximized light, airflow, and sanitation. After the Second World War, it was converted into lodging for infantry units to meet the growing accommodation demands of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Today, its gazebo, mature trees, flowering shrubs, pathways, and seating make it a beautiful site to enjoy community events or visit with friends and family.
