Awesome place to take your kids to play hockey and other sports. Recently added aquatic facility to it. Took my boys there. Loved it. Recommended.
Beautiful place for children to learn martial marts, skating, hockey and the newest addition, their swimming pool. A must see for whole family.
WFCU centre did it again with its presentation of OVO from Cirque de Soliel. I strongly recommend seeing this show. The entertainers are incredible and the show is clever and funny. A great night out ... read more »
bad location. no hotels nearby. closest restaurants are not walking distance. Who did the planning to have this area built here?
Nice venue. Have been there for a show and a hockey game as well as craft shows, etc. only complaint is that there is only one exit in the parking lot so when a big event finishes it takes a while to get out
The WFCU CENTRE is a great place to practice your figure skating on Fridays from 12:15 PM to 3:05 PM EST. The rink is never overly damp. The ice is condition is perfect for skating, not too hard or soft.
Went to Hedley concert here, venue was nice and clean. Really enjoyed the concert.
They need to open more food vendors and bathrooms. Went to a show here and they only had two food stands open and two bathrooms.
