Bridgeport Community Centre has reopened for select registered programs. 

Bridgeport Community Centre, located at 20 Tyson Dr., has been a gathering place for the surrounding community since 1970. 

Located next to the Grand River and the Walter Bean Trail, and tucked in beside Tyson Park, the centre is home to one of the largest community ice rinks in the city, and features a multipurpose room and two meeting rooms that are equipped to offer a variety of programs and activities.



All programming, including drop-in programming now requires registration. To register for programs, please visit ACTIVE Net
