Powell River Recreation Complex
Since the closure of the Recreation Complex in March, our team has been working closely with industry partners such as Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Parks & Recreation Association, Municipal Insurance Association of BC, Worksafe BC and others to develop a re-opening plan for parks, recreation, and culture programs and services. We’re excited to announce that a plan is now in place that allows us to slowly reopen, on a limited basis, some of our programs and services.
Please see the latest press release: City of Powell River Media Release, June 2, 2020.
At the heart of this community is the Powell River Recreation Complex which features two NHL sized ice surfaces, a large aquatic centre, fitness centre & studio, the 720 seat Evergreen Theatre, and several meeting rooms that can accommodate your needs. Adjacent to the Complex is the state of the art Powell River Bike and Skateboard Park, a 1.5km multi-use paved pathway and numerous hiking and biking trails that spread throughout Millennium Park.

We’ve also just completed a complete renovation on the sauna. Male, Female, and Family Change rooms are available with coin lockers for safe keeping of valuables.
Weight Room & Fitness Studio
The 2200 sq. foot weight room features a complete line up of cardio, strength, and free weight lift equipment. In May 2017, the facility received a complete upgrade of its strength equipment, featuring Hoist Selectorizor weight machines. Adjacent to the meeting room is the Dogwood room which hosts several group fitness classes throughout the day. Come and get a complete workout today!
The Powell River Recreation Complex features the largest community theatre in Powell River. Its 720 seat capacity affords community groups and entertainers the opportunity to pack the house year round. It also can convert into a much smaller 240 seat theatre for more intimate performances. The theatre is rentable year round and is a favorite among many community groups. In 2015, the Evergreen Theatre received funding through the Community Forrest Foundation for all new seating in the Compact Theatre. Click here for more information.
Hap Parker Arena & Rink
Featuring 2 NHL sized playing surfaces, the Hap Parker Arena and Rink play host to sports groups year round, featuring the BCHL Jr. A Powell River Kings and Powell River Minor Hockey. The Hap Parker Arena case seat up to 1700 spectators and once the ice comes out, it plays hosts to large events throughout the year such as the International Kathaumixw Choral Festival, Powell River Home Show, conventions, concerts and more!
