Armour Heights Community Centre has a lot to offer the Cricket Club neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood of Armour Heights borders the Cricket Club on its west side. What do you do when the neighbourhood has a fully~functional recreational facility? You Enjoy it! 

The Armour Heights Community Centre is just on the edge of the boundaries of the Cricket Club, providing a wide range of services for families, kids and adults that are only a short walk away from home at the corner of Avenue Road and Wilson Avenue.

Run by dedicated volunteers, the centre also offers wonderful after school programs for children over four years of age to teenagers.

Kids and family programs include gymnastics, dance and various sports such as kickboxing, karate, floor hockey soccer, archery and badminton. The Centre also offers other activities like art and woodworking classes, chess, science programs and cooking courses, all for very reasonable prices.

They also have wonderful programs for adults which include fitness classes, yoga, tai chi, cardio salsa, pilates, volleyball and badminton.

New activities for the year 2010 include family badminton; “themes and scenes” programs that teach children all about classic art and dinosaurs; mock “So You Think You Can Dance” programs for kids; and a mad science course teaching kids from ages six to eight all about optical illusions, colours and taste buds.

Canada’s Economic Action Plan has also allotted a total of over $600,000 to enhancing the infrastructure of the centre, with over $200,000 of that being federal funding.

There is something for everyone at the Armour Heights Community Centre, especially those who are looking to give back to their community through the many volunteer opportunities available. The community centre also houses the wonderful Armour Heights Public Library.   We are very lucky to have this wonderful community centre, right in our own backyard!!!  Please see the contact information below…and check it out!!!
