Fitness Memberships are back!

Fitness Centre

With indoor programs returning to various community centres across Richmond, the City is reactivating memberships to make fitness access and registration even easier.

Customers who hold memberships can now choose to reactivate them to access and register for fitness classes and fitness centre visits that take place starting Monday, November 2. Reactivated memberships can be used for registration as of Monday, October 26.

Memberships were placed on hold in March when facilities closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With services gradually being restored, the City is encouraging membership holders to make use of them for the many fitness classes and fitness centres now on offer.

Should an existing membership holder prefer to no longer use their pass, the City can credit or refund the dollar value of their membership for the period of time it was not available for use plus any time remaining on their paid-in-full membership.

To find out how to purchase a new membership, reactivate your existing membership, or receive a credit or refund, visit richmond.ca/register or phone the Registration Call Centre at 604-276-4300, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.

Virtual Celebration – Harvest Full Moon

Celebrate the Harvest Full Moon with us this year online through stories, reflections, and photos.

The full moon in autumn is the most beautiful moon of the year. It is called the ‘Harvest Full Moon’ as it coincides with the farmers and fishers’ harvesting time around the world and throughout history. At this time of year we celebrate our City’s rich agricultural and fishing history and give thanks during the harvest season through traditions, rituals, and the arts.

Celebrate the Harvest Full Moon with us this year online through stories, reflections, and photos. Click here to view a lantern making tutorial video and to learn more.

Happy Birthday City Centre!

We are celebrating our 5th birthday through special memories and photos!

Lang Centre was the primary facility to City Centre area in the past until 2015 when City Centre Community Centre opened its doors. Lang Centre is now the satellite facility to City Centre Community Centre. We do not forget our roots from where our community initiatives and engagement all started from.

In a blink of an eye, five years has gone by and we have offered many special events, programs and services. Most importantly, we have created meaningful relationships and connections with our community members, other community organizations and our members.

Without you all, we would not be able to carry out our events like Harvest Full Moon, Chinese New Year Celebration, Pride Drag Show, Concerts in the Park, Outdoor Movie Night and Youth Leadership Groups. 

All of these fabulous events and programs are supported by our amazing instructors, community partners, and our volunteers. Without these key players in our community, we would not be able to have come this far.

Thank you all for being with us on this journey as we celebrate this special day with you all through some special memories, stories and pictures. Let’s continue to build leadership, relationships, and grow together as a community!
