Edithvale Community Centre

The new Edithvale Community Centre has opened. The old Edithvale Community Centre established in 1984 in the former Edithvale Public School, quickly became a hub for the community and has housed more than 50 local groups, many of which will now use the new community centre. The centre was designed with extensive community input and features a double gymnasium, banquet hall, youth lounge, seniors' lounge, two preschool rooms, a demo/cooking kitchen, three craft rooms, fitness and dance studios, a weight room and an indoor, elevated running/walking track. The centre is conveniently located near public transit. There is also a path leading to the building for walkers and cyclists, as well as ample bike parking.
