Our Mission:

Centre Greene is an independent, not-for-profit community organization dedicated to providing quality recreational, social and cultural services to the community at large regardless of gender, age, race, ethnic group, ability or socio-economic status. Our success depends on volunteer help and financial support from outside sources.

A Brief History:

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 Stayner 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:

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, Summer Camp, Friday Youth programs (TGIF) to name a few. Information about current programs can be found here.

Our Future:

Centre Greene has been providing a valuable service to the community for 25 years and counting. We are interested in developing social, cultural and recreational programs for all age groups. What do you think the community needs? We want your ideas and suggestions, even an interest in starting a program at the Centre. We are also seeking volunteers to help out in various programs and events at the centre. Please contact Beth Symansky at the Centre.
