The Kerrisdale Community Centre (KCC) is jointly operated by Kerrisdale Community Centre Society (KCCS) and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. The Centre offers an exciting blend of programming in recreation, sport and the arts for all age groups.
One of the earliest community centres to be built in Vancouver, Kerrisdale Community Centre was constructed in 1952 through a local improvement by-law initiative whereby residents in the area agreed to directly fund facility building costs.
Serving a neighbourhood comprised of a growing senior’s population with a recent influx of young families there is something for everyone available through this very popular centre. Kerrisdale Community Centre is located at West 42nd Avenue and West Boulevard, just one block south of the bustling, village business district. An indoor pool, exercise room, gymnasium, public library and seniors’ wing comprise the main building complex with Kerrisdale’s Cyclone Taylor Skating Arena (with summer indoor play area ‘The Kerrisdale Play Palace’) sited just two blocks away.
Recreation programs of all description, for all ages can be found here along with swimming programs, lessons and a well-equipped fitness centre. Pottery, dance, health and fitness programs plus an indoor children’s play area can all be found at Kerrisdale Community Centre.
Outdoor amenities include a children’s playground and a lovely hybrid tea rose garden at the west end of the centre’s surrounding Kerrisdale Centennial Park.
