The Timms Community Centre opened it’s doors back in February, offering a plethora of amenities and classes for all ages.
Since we live close by and were curious to see what was inside this modern facility, we decided to pop in during their Open House event and take a little tour.
From the second we walked through the front entrance, we realized this was no ordinary recreation centre – there’s a lot of great stuff inside to explore and take full advantage of.
Here are just 7 reasons you’re going to love this beautiful brand new community hub, located at
20399 Douglas Crescent in Langley, B.C., as much as we do.
1.So Many Programs & Classes – The Timms Community Centre’s Gymnasium offers a wide range of programs for youth, adults and seniors. Programs include Sports & Play, Dodgeball, Volleyball, Indoor Soccer, Table Tennis, Badminton, Pickleball — there is even open gym times for users to play Basketball or many other sports.
2. The Track –The 100-metre indoor track is what really sets the Timms centre apart. Everyone from serious athletes to weekend warriors, seniors and moms with strollers can take advantage of this prime indoor walking/running space.
3.Childcare Available – Want to workout but need someone to watch the kids? Drop-in childcare is offered at select times for a small fee. Don’t worry, it won’t be Brit Brit minding your offspring.

7. Netflix & Cardio – Do you get bored easily at the gym? Boredom won’t be a problem at the Timms Community Centre. The state-of-the-art Cardio room is home to more than a dozen examples of the latest in gym equipment .Created by Italy’s TechnoGym — official supplier for both the Olympic and Pan Am Games — the socially interactive machines allow users to compete in physical challenges with someone on another piece of equipment.
Forget Netflix and Chill – Netflix and Cardio is where it’s at. Each machine is equipped with a screen that can stream Netflix from the user’s personal account or allow them to browse Facebook.
