Northside Community Centre hosts Official Opening July 24

July 10, 2019 11:18 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

The City of Red Deer and the YMCA of Northern Alberta are proud to partner to open the new Northside Community Centre. An official opening event will be held on Wednesday, July 24 from 4–7 p.m. at the community centre, located at the corner of Taylor Drive and 77 Street. There will be a brief formal program at 4:30 p.m., followed by a free barbecue with food and refreshments while supplies last. Everyone is welcome to come see the new facility and spend time with neighbours and friends at this family-friendly event.

Filling a gap of recreation services in the area, the Northside Community Centre is a dynamic facility that includes event rental spaces, arts and culture programs, youth programs, a teaching kitchen and rooftop patio, a tastefully finished gymnasium, fitness studio, multi-purpose rooms and more. The City will remain the owner of the facility with the YMCA responsible for all aspects of operating the new amenity. The centre opened July 2, with the YMCA running summer day camps and weekly Teen Nights. Group fitness with childminding, open gym time, and the drop-in youth centre will all be available August 1.

Media are welcome to attend the Official Opening to experience the new Northside Community Centre firsthand and speak to knowledgeable YMCA and City of Red Deer staff.
