Welcome to the Recreation Youth Centre. Our objective is to provide a relaxed atmosphere for young people to hang out and have fun with friends. We focus on those aged 13 - 17 years, but also feature specific opportunities for children under 12 and young adults 18+.
The RYC strives to offer safe recreational opportunities for patrons of all ages. Children who are left unattended will only be supervised within the scope of our recreational programs. We strongly encourage parents with children 9 years of age or younger to remain on the premises to ensure appropriate supervision is provided for the duration of their stay. Parents of children aged 10 - 12 are invited to stay as well, but parents of youth aged 13+ are encouraged to leave the building so we may be able to provide a more relaxed atmosphere suitable for their enjoyment.
Parents who participate with their child or make use of RYC equipment are required to purchase a wristband from the kiosk for $1, which will help offset the additional wear on our program supplies and provide revenue for its replacement.
The RYC features a large indoor Sk8Park with 10,000 square feet of ledges, stairs, rails, gaps, boxes, banks, custom ramps, a wall ride with five feet of vert and a 32 foot wide 4' mini ramp with two 5' extensions and a 6' roll in that leads to an 11 foot high bank. The park provides for a great experience. No matter what your skate ability - beginner to advanced.
As well the Recreation Youth Centre has a full gymnasium, games area (pool table, tabletop shuffleboard, air hockey tables, foosball, table tennis, large screen TV, Wii, and assorted board games), Bicycles, unicycles, longboards, and RipStiks are not permitted in the park.
