Community Centres equipped with 50" Flat-screen Plasma TVs

Community Centres equipped to become Community Living Rooms during the Olympics

As the Olympics draw near, the City of Vancouver and Park Board are looking to open up the Olympic experience to everyone by equipping all 23 community centres with 50-inch plasma flat-screen TVs. The idea is to create a community living room atmosphere where Vancouverites can come together to enjoy their favourite events in a public space.

After the Games are over, the TVs will remain in the community centres as Olympic Legacy amenities that can be used for community movie nights and other visual displays.Click here for more information.
