The Nelson and District Youth Centre has been serving young people in this city with energy and pride for two decades. The centre was thoughtfully envisioned by city council in 1997 to ....’Create a safe, accepting and empowering community where all youth can interact and access a variety of activities they need and enjoy'.
Most people know the Youth Centre features a fabulous indoor all-wheels park, but that is just a fraction of what we offer. There’s a band room, art room, dance studio, indoor basketball court, pool table, Foosball and ping pong tables - in short, a whole host of healthy activities and special programs for youth to explore and learn. The centre has grown into a place for young people and parents to gather, exercise, learn new skills or hang out with friends.
Indoor shoes and helmets are mandatory for the All-Wheels park.
On October 26, 2021, BC's Public Health Officer (PHO) updated the Gatherings and Events Order.
Three primary changes were made to the Order:
Anyone entering the Nelson and District Youth Centre over the age of 21 will have to show proof of vaccination upon entry followed by a valid piece of ID.
We thank you for your patience. We are happy to allow these programs to continue for Children and Youth as we enter into the colder months.
