About Centre Greene
The Greene Avenue Community Centre (Centre Greene) was established in the spring of 1989 by the local community who wished to utilize the three-story building constructed by the Westmount Rotary Club during the 1940s to house a Unity Boys and Girls club. It is situated on Greene Avenue below Dorchester, across from Staynor Park. The City of Westmount purchased the building from Rotary in 1993 and has a long term lease with us for a nominal rent. We are responsible for operating, financing and maintaining the Centre which has six main activity rooms and a gymnasium.
Our programs fall into two categories. On one hand we provide space at very reasonable rates for a wide variety of suitable activities ranging from dance to music to daycare to volleyball. These are a source of revenue for us. On the other, our staff organizes and provides activities and events that are of benefit to the community such as a Senior Luncheon, Tumbling Tots, After School, and Summer Camp to name a few.
Centre Greene is a well used building and is in constant need of repairs and upgrades. Thanks to donations we were able to complete our "accessibility project" by fully renovationg our washrooms as well as adding a new wheelchair accessible washroom. Our upcoming projects include renovating our Gymnasium which is in desperate need of new flooring and lighting.
