Valley East has a number of major activity centres scattered throughout the community. Each serves a variety of sports and recreational functions providing easy access to all residents. Several of the centres will be featured on this site for your convenience.


The main Valley East Community Centre is located in the heart of Valley East at the corner of Dominion Drive and Elmview Drive in Hanmer. The spacious complex features a separate recreation facility with many indoor options for residents. In addition, there is a large soccer complex, basketball courts, a walking trail and children's play area. Another building on the site houses the public library and the municipal service centre. It is indeed a place where the entire family can enjoy hours of recreational, cultural and educational activities.

You should spend a few minutes taking a virtual tour of the Howard Armstrong Recreation Centre and see the many options that are available to local residents.  The Howard Armstrong Recreation Centre has been in operation since 1983 and provides the 25,000 residents of Valley East with a wide range of fitness and cultural options. With four full-time and 46 part-time staff on hand to serve the more than 2000 members, local residents are in for a real treat when they step inside the complex.

The whole world is at your fingertips when you step inside the Valley East Citizen Service Centre and Public Library Facility, located at the corner of Dominion and Elmview Drives in Hanmer.  When the City of Greater Sudbury was formed in 2001, it was decided to continue to provide service to the outlying areas, such as Valley East, by establishing Citizen Service Centres within many of the existing local public library facilities. Therefore, what was once simply known as the “Library” is now a combined “Town Hall/Public Library”, where residents have access to virtually all of the services that are offered at the new central Tom Davies Square. This beautiful building provides very convenient access for all residents because of its central location.

The Centennial Arena is a hub of activity all year long. During the winter months it is the site of most of the home games for the Valley East Progressive Hockey Association teams and is booked solid with hockey and figure skating. The upstairs consists of a large community hall which is often used for weddings and other large events. 

In the summer months, the two softball fields on the property are buzzing with action five nights a week as teams from the Valley East Mens and Ladies Slo Pitch Associations compete. Tuesdays and Thursdays it is the men. Mondays and Wednesdays it is the Ladies. And Sundays it is the Mixed.

The Ray Plourde Arena, formerly known as Confederation Arena, is located behind Confederation Secondary School. It is very active during the winter months and is the home arena of the Valley East Consbec 'AAA' Midget Team. This is also where most of the ringette action takes place. The Valley East boxing club operates out of the upstairs.
Whether you call it Sandy Beach or Kalmo Beach, it is one of the jewels of Valley East. Located off Main Street East, visitors will find this beautiful beach at the end of a pleasant two minute country drive along a newly paved road way. Even if you don't swim, it is worth the drive to see the spectacular view.
