More than 2,500 people took part in classes and programs at the Timms Community Centre in its first week of opening.
Langley City is tracking public usage.
“We’ve been blown away by the response from the community,” said Mayor Ted Schaffer. “From the beginning our goal was for the Timms Community Centre to become the go-to place for people in Langley to connect. It’s been only a couple of weeks since it opened and the place is already alive with a sense of community.”
Since the official opening on Feb. 24, more than 1,600 people have registered with the new centre.
“It’s great to see people from all backgrounds and ability levels joining the classes and getting active,” said Lynn Baker, one of the community centre’s qualified instructors. “Every day that people turn up to a class is a step in the right direction; I love seeing people enjoy what they’re doing.”
The public has already logged more than 210 hours on the TechnoGym equipment.
Programs and hours of operation have expanded to enable members to fit in a morning workout or lunchtime classes.
