Vancouver Park Board Chair John Coupar and all Commissioners are very pleased to share good news related to the construction of the long awaited Southeast Vancouver Seniors Centre at the Killarney Community Centre.

The Killarney Community Centre Association has approved the final hurdle of clarifying facility ownership, which now permits the immediate issuance of a Request for Proposal for the design and construction of the Centre. The successful company will be selected by January 2016. A full construction schedule will be released in the coming months.

The Park Board would like to thank the Killarney Community Centre Association, the Killarney Seniors Centre Society, and the Southeast Vancouver Seniors’ Arts and Cultural Society for their collective commitment and leadership in ensuring that this much needed facility gets built as soon as possible.

Chair Coupar states “this important step illustrates the benefit of the new, positive tone set by the Park Board toward a more collaborative relationship with our community partners.”
