Max Turyk Community Centre

The City of Fernie purchased the former elementary school from SD5 in 2008 and began operating it as Max Turyk Community Centre, leasing out classroom space and renting the gymnasium to community groups and the public.  In 2014, the Max Turyk Community Sports Fields were opening behind the the facility, and in the subsequent years a playground and pickleball courts were added to the site. 

Max Turyk is currently home to several organizations that offer childcare and school services to the community.  The gym is available to rent, as well as the outdoor pickleball courts and sports fields.
