Just this past summer, the town of Radium celebrated the very exciting opening of its amazing, new Community Center. This beautiful gathering place is a great gift to Radium. It is on "Stanley Street", west  of the Information Center.  

 Many donations from the community have poured into giving Radium a new Community Center, and, it was worth every penny! They did a spectacular job! This center is a very large, and very classy space that is painted in earth tone colours. This Community hall holds 186 people, and, usually, big events are held in a very spacious “Great Room”.  A couple community events have been held here this year, such as a fundraiser party night to raise money for a local who is going through cancer treatment. This was a great success, a night of fun and dancing, and the community center gave a great space to show our community coming together for each other.    

This room looks out onto the gorgeous, scenic forest area. You feel like you’re in the woods. It is a fantastic space to hold an event, so, if you're looking for somewhere to host one, give them a call! 

The Center also has a kitchen that can be booked for catering groups, or anybody that is wanting to host their own party A their own food. They have a beautiful library to get cozied up and read a book, or to do some research with computers.  The lovely librarian, Jackie Wagner was so sweet and was happy to see us. She wanted to pick our brains on what they can do to make their space move inclusive and accessible to all. We had a great chat 

Cassy, Forrest, our friend Tanelle and I were all very impressed with the building, and felt as though they put a lot of thought into making it accessible to as many people as possible. It is probably one of the most accessible places we have reviewed in our valley.  A job well done to all those involved with the building and creation of the Radium Community Center. It is a center your community can be proud of, that’s for sure! If you are coming to Radium, do not forget to pop in, and take a look at the incredible work they have done!
