The Rock Pit Gym is outfitted with a variety of free weights, aerobic equipment, treadmill, elliptical trainers and bikes. Our 61 m x 26 m (200 ft x 85 ft) arena boasts some of the best ice in the Peace Region, with three sheets for curling and a full-scale ice hockey surface. An indoor children’s playground welcomes the little ones on the main level, alongside a full service restaurant.

The Public Library, with computer and internet access, can also be found here. Downstairs is the Sports Hall of Fame, where Tumbler Ridge athletes who have excelled provincially and nationally are highlighted. .

Youth Centre

The Community Centre is home to the District sponsored Youth Centre. A safe place for young people in grades 5-12 to interact with friendly peers, the Youth Centre is open Tuesday through Saturday, afternoons and evenings, for games of pool, foosball or to just kick back and hang out. Inside the Youth Centre there is a rock climbing wall which is also available to be rented out to the public.

Tumbler Ridge Museum Displays

Also in the Community Centre are the free Tumbler Ridge Museum displays exploring local natural and human history. You will find a historical map collection (including the 1906 first known map of the area), the town’s coal-mining beginnings, early dinosaur discoveries, and photos of hardy pioneers such as Samuel Prescott Fay, Prentiss Gray and more. Visitors can also view a major retrospective on the construction of the Monkman Pass Highway in the late 1930s. The Art Gallery showcases local artists’ work and photographs of some of the area’s scenic splendour.
