Albert Park Community Association
The community centre is easily identifiable by the bright mural painted on its side. It contains dartboards, a community kitchen, snooker, pool and shuffleboard tables as well as a big screen TV. Every Tuesday is bingo night at the centre. Another popular community hangout is the Skate Shack, also run by the community association. The skate shack allows residents to take part in games of shinny, or to engage in pleasure skating. Hockey, registered for through the community, takes place at the nearby Twin Arenas.
