The Community Centre is Big River’s largest and most diverse venue. With space available to accommodate both large and small groups, the Community Centre is the ideal location for recreational programming and private events.
Construction of the Community Centre was completed in 2005 and was made possible by the donations and fundraising efforts of the Community of Big River. The building, which is connected to the Big River Arena, currently houses the Municipal Offices, Recreation & Cultural Board Office, Community Gym, and Library.
Tours of the Community Centre facilities can be scheduled with the Recreation Office at any time during office hours. Tours will not be accommodated if rental groups are utilizing the facility.
