Need a room for a meeting place, birthday party, shower or a gym to practice floor hockey, basketball or soccer in? Looking for a place to run a karate, art or music class? Well, the Centre is the place to come! We rent our gym and classrooms to the public for just those reasons. It’s a great place to be and the prices are right. The Centre is available for weddings and large social functions after regular closing hours.
Note: The Centre does not allow adult birthday parties.  Birthday parties are allowed for children ages 1-12 and youth ages 13-16.  Youth dances parties are only allowed in one of our multi purpose rooms located on the upper level.  Maximum youth allowed is 25 and there must be one adult for every 8 children. Adults must remain in the room with youth for the entire length of party.  
Jump Tents/Inflatables: Due to Covid-19 Jump Tent Parties are not available. There are strict rules in Nova Scotia governing inflatable equipment.  All inflatable equipment must be certified and a certified operator must be present when inflatables are being used.  Only companies that adhere to these rules can be used within the Centre for a birthday party.  The Centre does have a certified inflatable and a certified operator that is present while being used.  Renters cannot bring in inflatables from home that are not certified.
