The Don Christian Recreation Centre at 6220 184 Street reopens July 27 after six weeks of renovations.

Don Christian Rec Centre in Cloverdale re-opens Monday

The facility has undergone renovations over the past six weeks that modernize the space and make it more accessible.

Don Christian Recreation Centre in Cloverdale is reopening Monday, with a  fresh new look and feel.

The facility has been closed for the past six weeks while renovations were underway.

The improvements are designed to make the facility more accessible and create a more welcoming environment.

Interior upgrades include a new lobby space and front counter, energy-efficient washrooms and lighting, flooring and an updated colour scheme. As well, the building is now equipped with Wi-Fi and closed circuit television.

The recreation centre is home to the City of Surrey’s pre-school, childcare, and summer day camp programs, so a number of renovations and improvements have been made to foster child development skills.

Along with an expanded green space, there are gathering areas to promote social development; planting boxes to enhance cognitive development;  there’s a play area featuring natural areas, such as boulders and fallen logs, features that help foster gross motor skill development.

The improvement project began in mid-June.

The rec centre is located next to Don Christian Park and Don Christian Elementary School at 6220 184 Street. It reopens July 27.

The centre offers a range of recreation programs for all ages. In addition to preschool and childcare programs, the centre is home to summer day camps, pre-teen dances, and adult fitness and general interest programs. There’s also a free, weekly drop-in art program for children and families. The facility can be rented for special events.
