Valour Community Centre was officially opened late Monday as part of a gymnasium and renovation project. Located at 715 Tefler Street North, the $2.26 million renovation helps to boost the growing needs of the surrounding community and their families, including youth.
Formerly called the Isaac Brock Community Centre, the new expansion project included the construction of a regulation-size gymnasium to accommodate basketball, volleyball and other gym-related activities. Renovations continued throughout the main floor and basement levels, creating a new multi-purpose room, meeting room, full-size kitchen and atrium.
Along with the exterior work, significant upgrades were also done to the outside of the building, including landscaping enhancements and a new parking lot.
Out of the $2.26 million in funding, $683,281 came from the Building Communities Initiative (BCI), $1,195,659 from the Community Centre Investment Fund (CCIF), and $371,081 from the City of Winnipeg (including Community Incentive Grant and Land Dedication).
