At 13,450 m2, the Hillcrest Centre is the largest facility of its kind in the Vancouver Park Board system and includes both a 6,200 m2 aquatic centre and 7,250 m2 community centre. The integrated community space provides open and engaging recreation and wellness facilities and has revitalized an important public site through the consolidation of three aging facilities. A bustling hub with a library, pool, skating rink, curling rink, gymnasium and field team rooms, Hillcrest is a joyful gathering place for children, families and community members.
“On a cold November Wednesday evening, the centre looked straight out of a movie set. The pool was packed with laughing children, the ice rink crowded with skaters sporting toques and the workout room filled with athletes of all abilities, as it is constantly. As I arrived and left the centre, dozens of people of all ages flowed through the front door. If there ever was a picture of success, it’s the beautifully designed Hillcrest Centre…”
