Southeast False Creek Community Centre Renamed and Opening AnnouncedLast week the Southeast False Creek Community Centre was renamed the Creekside Community Recreation Centre and it will open in just one week! Yes, on July 19th the brand new Creekside Community Centre (why did they include “Recreation” in the name?) on the shore of False Creek will open to the public.
This will be a soft-launch from what I understand and full programming will not be available until the Fall. Room rentals will be available and the gym will open, but without all of it’s equipment.
I for one am really looking forward to the Community Centre opening in Southeast False Creek. I think this along with the shops that will open in the Fall will really get the community feeling going in the neighbourhood.
When fully operation the Creekside Community Centre will include:
• Fitness centre complete with brand new top-of-the-line equipment
• Licenced preschool
• Boating facilities (coming in 2011)
• Multi-purpose rooms with views of the waterfront and mountains
• Limited kitchen facilities
• Dance studio
