The Scotiabank Dance Centre is a contemporary venue, with industrial fixtures, located in the heart of the downtown business district and close to public transport. The 32,000 sq ft, seven storey, glass-enclosed building houses five spacious studios and a production/performance studio, administrative offices and other facilities. All six studios are two stories high with sprung floors and air conditioning. Other features of the Dance Centre include a Boardroom with 16 chairs, table, wipe board and pin boards, projector screen and telephone. Wheelchair access throughout except for two studios on Level 4.
This recreation facility has a long history, one entwined with that of beautiful Douglas Park. The building site was once the location for a popular park pavilion which stood from 1928 until the Douglas Park Community Hall was constructed in 1966 and has evolved over the decades into one of Vancouver’s most popular neighbourhood recreational facilities. Located near the centre of Douglas Park’s tree-lined 13 acres, the community centre offers a wide range of programs for all ages but with a strong focus on preschool and school age activities. New programming for youth has resulted in a featured skateboard activity along with expanded offerings for seniors and people with disabilities. A half gymnasium, popular exercise room and numerous activity rooms round out this facility’s jam-packed recreational agenda.
The beautifully appointed Vancity Theatre can be used to screen films, video and multi-media presentations, seminars or live performance (music, theatre, etc.).

Opened in 1980, the construction of False Creek Community Centre was one of several public facilities planned by the City of Vancouver who developed this former industrial area located on the the southern shore of False Creek. Its prime location on bustling Granville Island coupled with its access to the waterfront provide additional and unique programming opportunities. Presently in the midst of receiving an expansion and other improvements, the centre primarily serves a population of “baby boomers” (those born between 1947 and 1965) but offers a roster of programs and events for all ages. Specialty programs and services include canoeing, kayaking, tennis, performing arts, after school daycare and a well-equipped fitness centre. False Creek’s proximity to Vancouver’s seaside bicycle route makes an excellent starting point for cycling excursions; either west to Spanish Bank or east toward Stanley Park and Coal Harbour.

The Chinese Cultural Centre is also home to the Chinese Canadian Military Museum that recounts the story of Chinese Canadian veterans of the Second World War.
