The staff and volunteers of Killarney Recreation Centre are dedicated to offering quality leisure services to the community at large. We understand the cultural diversity of the community and work to bridge the gaps that exist between different people by bringing them together in recreational activities. Inclusivity and access to all is an important aspect of our service delivery.
Killarney Community Centre, swimming pool and ice rink was officially opened on September 14, 1963 by the Vancouver Park Board and the Killarney Community Centre Society. The Community Centre received a complete redevelopment during 1998-1999. The redevelopment allowed Killarney Community Centre to expand its service delivery to a growing community by adding more lounge space, 2 new childcare facilities, and a fitness centre. In April of 2001, Killarney unveiled its community computer lab that allows public access to 11 computers. Most recently, a new $8.9 million NEW pool was approved to be constructed in the 2002 Vancouver Civic Election. Construction on the new, much larger aquatic facility is scheduled to begin in mid-2004.
