The new Timms Community Centre will serve as a community and cultural hub where residents can come together to access group activities, health and fitness opportunities, public information and community resources. A truly integrated facility, it draws together three primary users – Langley City Hall, Fraser Valley Regional Library and Timms Community Centre – into a single, active and inviting Civic Facility.

Offering programs that will benefit youth, seniors, families, new immigrants and persons with disabilities, Timms Community Centre will attract regular and new visitors, encourage participation and social integration and become a vibrant focus for community pride. It will act as a potential catalyst for future development in the downtown core and will promote the well-being of the citizens of Langley through easily accessible and safe exercise facilities.

Influencing positive health outcomes through active living, we envision this facility as the civic heart of our community – a
go-to-place to meet, engage, connect, learn, celebrate, and be active together.
