Click on the above links and follow us on social media to keep up to date on what’s happening in your community!
Community board game night is now a regular event! Bring your family, friends, and neighbors out for some fun games, snacks, and drinks!
Every second Friday of the month in the Lower Hall.
Access the lower hall by the rear doors next to the skating rink under the deck.
Join us every Sunday from 10 AM – noon for a casual hang out with your neighbours in the green space behind the Banff Trail Community Centre!
Free coffee for adults and hot chocolate for kids (please bring a mug if you remember). Dress for the weather as this event happens rain or shine (or snow).
Join us for free public family ice skating every Sunday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at the brand new Banff Trail Community Centre Outdoor Rink (at least until the ice melts, anyway). If you haven’t seen the rink yet, it’s on the corner of 20 Ave and 20 St NW, right behind the community centre.
There will be free coffee for the parents and hot chocolate for the kiddos (bring a mug, if you remember). Every Sunday will also be soundtracked with classic soul music by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, and The Temptations. Just a heads up that no hockey equipment will be allowed on the ice during the open skate.
It doesn’t matter whether you just turned 1 or 100 years old, grab a pair of skates and swing down this Sunday (and the one after that…) for this free public event (no community membership required). See you there!
