A look back at some of the fun had at River District.


Lunar New Year Celebrations

This season, we had fun at the River District Annual Lunar New Year Celebrations!

At Town Centre we watched a traditional Chinese lions dance performance and ceremony that blessed those who joined in as well as our local retailers. We enjoyed fried rice from Westminster Savings, lucky red envelopes from Save-On-Foods, herbal teas from River District Physio, refreshments and more!

Back at the Neighbourhood Centre we were joined by the Hon. George Chow MLA who performed the ceremony of dotting of the eye of the lions. There was also an interactive Tai Chi demonstration, fortune cookies and sweet pineapple buns.


See what’s happening at River District.


Look who’s joining the Town Centre Family
We’re thrilled to share that Orange Theory Fitness is coming to River District Town Centre where we can maximize our workout soon.

Then, it will be off to Spice Beauty Bar for a little pampering as they will also be part of Town Centre.
