Hillcrest Centre Grand Opening

Saturday, October 29, 2011 - 11:00am - 3:00pm


In partnership with the Vancouver Park Board and all of our neighbours at the Hillcrest Centre, the VCC is proud to celebrate the facility's grand opening. A legacy of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Hillcrest Centre is a spectacular community centre that includes a library, a fitness centre, a gymnasium, a hockey arena, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, as well as the new home of the Vancouver Curling Club.

This day-long community celebration - from 11am to 3pm - is a chance to celebrate this legacy facility. Free activities during the day include:

  • Free on-ice coaching to allow people to give it a go on the ice
  • Capital One Rocks & Rings (a curling program held on the floor – not on the ice – to introduce kids to curling)
  • Colouring station and balloons for kids
  • Brier Cup and the Continental Cup will be on-hand for photos
  • Kids storytime in the Terry Salman Library Branch
  • Dance lessons and demonstrations in the recreation centre
  • Live music throughout the facility
  • And much more!

The official Opening Ceremony will take place at 1pm, and the VCC will also host a special ceremony at 2pm for Leo Hebert regarding his recent awarding of an Honorary Life Membership from Curl BC.
