The Fernwood Community Centre is a civic building operated by Fernwood NRG under an agreement with the City of Victoria. Fernwood NRG (previously, the Fernwood Community Centre Society) has operated the building continuously since 1980 when it opened. The Fernwood Community Centre was built with funds from the Neighbourhood Improvement Program in 1979-80. The portable behind the Community Centre was installed by Fernwood NRG in 2001 to add additional community space in Fernwood.
The centre houses two full-time Child Care programs, and provides space for the Canada Pre-Natal Nutrition Program (Best Babies). As well, numerous other family and recreational programs operate out of the centre.
Fernwood Family Dinner is an opportunity for families to enjoy a prepared meal, as a family and with families of the community; followed by a time to play and socialize together. The dinner will provide a healthy meal, ideas for easy meal preparation, access to food resources as well as a social time to bring families together, supporting them in spending quality time together while alleviating the pressure of preparing an affordable meal. Planned play activities will provide opportunities for one-one parent support.
