Facility Upgrades


Thanks to our successful application with Employment and Social Development Canada- Enabling Accessibility Fund, we replaced the front doors to the community centre and added wave activated accessibility buttons. We are happy that the community centre is now more accessible for everyone, including those with mobility limitations as well as families with little children. 

New doors were installed in June 2023.


We are very excited to share that Riverbend Community Centre will be becoming greener soon! We were successful with our application for the ENMAX Community Solar Program. Several solar panels were installed on the community centre roof in early June 2023 which will help us offset our energy costs.


We would like to thank ECCO Recycling (eccorecycling.com) for their generous donation in support of our garbage enclosure project!  

Thanks to their generosity, we were able to upgrade materials to no maintenance composite that should last for a long time. 

Outdoor Signage

Promotional signs

Our outdoor promotional sign was destroyed in a car accident back in Nov 2021. We are very excited to welcome back 2 new outdoor signs. 

Monument sign

We are excited to share that the outdoor monument sign got a fresh coat of paint.

New Patio

Lower level

We are all really excited to see the lower level transition into a more child-friendly space with a refresh of paint colours, purpose built elements and the ability to conduct different types of activities in different rooms. Thank you Little Steps for all your work on this!

Earlier Upgrades

New Appliances (2020)

All original 30+ year-old appliances have been replaced with modern, energy efficient models. There are 2 new fridges, 2 new stoves and 2 new commercial dishwashers.

New Furniture (2020)

We replaced round heavy wooden tables with lighter plastic folding tables and also replaced heavy fabric chairs with plastic stacking chairs.

The new furniture will ensure long lifespan of our new floors as well as will be easy to clean and sanitize according to pandemic requirements.

Walls in the Bow Room are now protected by beautiful wainscoting. Thank you Mission Hill for installing this!
