British Columbia - Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre

Vancouver, BC - Since 1887, the Roundhouse has been an important entity in the history of BC and of Canada, holding a significant position in commerce and development in Vancouver. The Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre is jointly operated by the Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation and the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Society. ENGINE 374

The community centre is proud to also house Engine 374. Engine 374 was the first passenger train to enter Vancouver on May 23, 1887. It sat lonely and deteriorating in Kitsilano Park for many years until train lovers rescued and restored it in time for Expo 86. After a major fundraising campaign by the Vancouver Central Lionís Club it found its new home in the glass pavilion attached to the Roundhouse, where it is a designated heritage monument.
