The two-storey, 2,900m2 Wesbrook Community Centre is located at the heart of the rapidly growing Wesbrook Village neighbourhood, on the Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia. With construction completed in September 2015, the community centre acts as a hub for all community activities. This new municipal landmark includes a gymnasium and fitness centre, art and dance studios, and multipurpose rooms, all intended to further strengthen the community and promote social interaction and gathering.
