Welcome to the Cheam Leisure Centre

BC, V2R 0P2

T: 604-824-0231

 YMCA BC is pleased to be selected to operate the Chilliwack Leisure Centres--Cheam Leisure Centre, Chilliwack Landing Centre and Rotary Pool. The YMCA has been a part of Chilliwack community for over 50 years and is thrilled to expand our services to the community. 

Our primary goal this fall is to ensure a smooth transition of services, with an aim to increase hours and programming in 2023. 
Chilliwack leisure centre drop-in and membership rates will not change as part of this transition. Access to the Chilliwack YMCA on Hocking Ave will remain separate from using the leisure centres.
