    Hi there,

    Could we have an updated schedule of when the building is open? as I drove last night at 7:00pm and it was closed yet in the calendar schedule it was supposed to be open 7:00pm-10:00pm. Several months ago I drove their numerous times and days mostly 6:00pm and after and it was still closed. Thank you.

      Hey Sidney
      I tried to call you back twice but didn’t get an answer and your voice mail is full.. The Lake Echo Community Center is run by volunteers so unlikely if you drive by you will find someone here. If the seniors are here most times it is a private function so the door is locked. The only staff person here is me and I am only here Monday to Friday 9-1.If you need access to post on our bulletin board I would suggest Sunday night during bingo the doors would be unlocked to the public. Hope this helps. Joan

    Where is the movie theater located? Where is the best location to view the fireworks? Can the fireworks be seen from the movie theater?

      Hi Mark,

      The theatre will be in the parking lot of the community centre, 3168 HWY # 7 Lake Echo.

      Fireworks are set off from the beach area and are best seen from the front yard of our community centre.

    I would love to see children’s floor hockey ages 6-10 implemented. They have it in Porter’s Lake but the class fills up fast.

    It would be neat to see a layout (map) of the rec centre, with rooms that you can click on to see what’s going on when and what rooms are FREE to use for other things. That way, people who might want to rent space or run a class could see what’s available.

    It would also be great to have a brainstorming list of activities, sports, events, ect… with a feature that tallies up the number of people who would like to see each… People should be able to add ideas to the list and check off their interest in them.

    ie:

    IDEA: Total Interested:
    teen basketball 13
    cub scouts/brownies 12
    monthly adult dances 67
    monthly teen dances 35
    arts and crafts for kids 12
    arts and crafts for adults 15

    I am having a Wedding this summer and would love it if the Lake Echo Rec Centre actually had round tables. I have spoken with couples looking to get this this year. They would love to have a wedding at your location, but decided against same, unless you had round tables!

      Unfortunately the expense of purchasing round tables is out of the grasp of our board at this time.

      We are more than willing however to allow you to bring in rented round tables so that you can
      1) have the event in the venue you want
      2) have the round tables that you want ..

      I hope this suggestion will help.

    Yoga has been having some issues getting started. Perhaps if people would be able to come to a first class before deciding to take a full session, it would give them an opportunity to try it and see that it is a great way to stay mobile, in shape, relaxed and that it is so adaptable to all levels even within the same class. I realize this may mean some people could end up getting one class ‘free’, but I would guess many would decide to stay and pay !

    You should consider having some weekday kids classes start later than 6pm. For those parents who work in Halifax, it’s almost impossible to get home in time to get the kids there by 6:00. Even a 6:30 start would make a ton of difference.

    Would love to see more childrens programs at this location! There are hardly any programs (none for spring/summer) listed in the REC catalog for this centre.

      Hi Charlene,

      We apologize that you have been unable to review our upcoming programs but assure you they are coming. Please check back often, as the new board is in the midst of taking over the community centre and there will definitely be some summer programming.
