History of the Beaconsfield Neighbourhood Centre

Beaconsfield Neighbourhood Centre commenced as Beaconsfield Community Centre operating out of a portable building in Beaconsfield Avenue Beaconsfield, thanks to an enthusiastic group of Beaconsfield residents who formed an Incorporated Association to run a neighbourhood house in 1992.

Activities were held in several different buildings because the Beaconsfield Avenue building venue was small.

A Statement of Aims and Purposes was developed for the Centre, and is still used today, largely unchanged.

In 2004 the Centre relocated to its current, larger venue in the Beaconsfield Community Complex in O’Neil Road. The move offered an opportunity to expand programs and the Centre grew rapidly. The name was changed to Beaconsfield Neighbourhood Centre, to avoid confusion with the name of the new building.

All programs are now held under one roof at the Complex, with a popular children’s program and a wide variety of social, art and craft, health and learning activities. The courses and activities vary term to term, and change to reflect community demand.
