Months of construction finally over, the new Cloverdale Recreation Centre welcomed its first visitors Monday morning, quietly opening for a few badminton games, lunch time workouts and other activities.

The $20-million facility is so new, scaffolding was still attached to one of the exterior walls before the weekend.

A peek inside revealed a gleaming foyer, spacious workout rooms and activity areas.

The new recreation centre at 6188 176 Street is home to three full-size gymnasiums, a large fitness and weight room, and multipurpose rooms for pre-school, seniors and youth spaces.

At 66,000-square-feet, the facility is similar in design to the city's Guildford and South Surrey Recreation centres.

It's open for drop-in gym sports, weight room, fitness classes, child-minding and spring break camps.

The Cloverdale Recreation Centre swings into full operation Monday, April 4, when the hours of operation will be from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

During the soft opening, operating hours (in effect to April 2) are Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

For more information, call 604-598-7960 during operating hours.
