A good place to be happening.
There’s been over a century to develop an impressive array of infrastructure and services, unique to a community of this size. Infrastructure supports and hosts a wide variety of events and activities.
Kimberley boasts two indoor arenas, complete with regulation size ice surfaces, spectator seating, dressing rooms and concession facilities.
The community is home to the new Kimberley Aquatic Centre - a competition size 25 metre pool, complete with diving boards, tots pool, water features and a ‘lazy river.’ The centre also has a large 20-person whirlpool, a multipurpose room and a steam room. This facility is completely wheelchair accessible.
The Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre is the region’s largest facility of its kind. It accommodates up to 500 person theatre style events, and offers four breakout rooms. The centre is also fully wheel chair accessible.
Other community infrastructure include a Curling Centre; Library & Museum; Community Hall; and an arts centre with a 60-seat theatre, contemporary gallery and dance studio. There’s also the 500-seat McKim theatre, a two-court indoor tennis facility, bowling alleys, a movie theatre, fitness centres and an exceptional climbing gym.
