First developed in 1964, the Riley Park Community Centre philosophy is to encourage, develop and facilitate leisure opportunities for all ages in the Riley Park Neighbourhood.

Located at Ontario Street and East 30th Avenue, the centre is surrounded to the west and north by Queen Elizabeth and Hillcrest Parks which support such facilities as formal gardens, the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, a pitch & putt golf course, newly renovated playfields and Nat Bailey Baseball Stadium.

Riley Park Community Centre programs and services include sports, visual arts, performing arts, health and fitness, an indoor swimming pool, skating rink, café and fitness centre along with numerous special interest programs. Recent upgrades to the facility include swimming pool improvements to Percy Norman Pool and construction of both a junior and senior aged children's playground.

In 2007, following extensive consultation, planning and design work, construction began on the Vancouver Olympic Centre/Vancouver Paralympic Centre , a legacy facility for both curling and wheelchair curling at Hillcrest Park which will be used for the 2010 Winter Games. After the 2010 Winter Games, it will be converted to a new recreation complex with a community centre (replacing Riley Park), ice rink, branch library, curling club and offices. Being built at the same time is a new aquatic centre with indoor and outdoor pools (replacing Percy Norman) connecting to the new centre. Completion for 2010 Winter Games use will be by December 2008 in time for test events. The new multi-purpose complex will open to the public in 2011.
