Delbrook Opening Celebration Event

Delbrook Opening Celebration

You’re invited to the official opening of the Delbrook Community Recreation Centre and pool!

Join us on Saturday, June 24 from 12:00 - 4:00pm for this family friendly special event which will feature a FREE public swim, music, entertainment, arts activities, recreation demos, and the official ribbon cutting ceremony. We'll also be welcoming the Spakwus Slolem (Eagle Song Dancers) to perform and lead a special cedar blessing for the new facility. There will be food trucks on site and we'll be handing out cupcakes and passports to all who attend.

Hope to see you there!

P.S.  We're expecting a great community crowd and parking will be limited.  Please plan to walk, cycle or take transit to the event.  There will be some overflow parking at the old Delbrook centre and District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall.

Live Entertainment

Uzume Taiko Drummers, DJ Garrett, Juggler, 5 on a String & The Hoop Fairy
