Situated at West 16th Avenue and Ontario Street, Mount Pleasant Community Centre is in one of Vancouver’s oldest neighborhoods located at the heart of the city. Its ethnically and economically diverse residents live in a mix of single dwelling and high density housing.
The recreation facility has a fitness centre, gymnasium, racquetball courts, several multi-purpose rooms and an outdoor swimming pool. The centre is a hub of neighbourhood recreation with extensive programs in preschool, out of school care, fitness, art, youth and senior programs. Several outreach programs are also focused here providing services to neighbouring schools.
The facility is sited on Mount Pleasant Park (1.12 hectares) and one of the city’s popular bikeways passes the centre along Ontario Street.
The Mount Pleasant Community Centre is in the process of being relocated to a new site at #1 Kingsway (Kingsway and Main Street). The new facility is currently being constructed.
