Finding the Hall From The Street

Here are a few visual aids to help locate the hall from Richmond Rd:


The hall from Richmond road.

The Churchill Community Centre was built as a rear addition to an historic building - The Old Town Hall. Once you're in the neighbourhood of the hall (i.e. at the intersection of Churchill and Richmond) you should have no trouble spotting this building, situated on the north side of Richmond Road.

Entrance is on the building's east side

Once you've found The Old Town Hall, look for a lane way immediately to the right of the building's front. This takes you to the entrance of the dance hall. (Picture to be updated soon. Stairs and ramp now updated.)


Getting to the Hall

Here are some travelling options:

By City Bus (OC Transpo)

The Churchill Recreation Centre is easily accessible by:

By Car

Parking is available in the hall parking lot or on side streets near the hall.

The hall's parking lot is on the east side of the hall and its entrance is off Churchill Avenue. If you manage to get a spot in the lot (it's very small!) then you must register (for free) at the city reception desk in the building (to the right when you enter).
