Rolla Skate Club is located at the PNE’s Rollerland building. Rolla Skate Club is a community of skaters who offer beginner classes, youth programs, and more. Whether you’ve never strapped on a pair of skates or you’re a seasoned athlete, there’s a spot for you at Rollerland. With 20,000 square feet, a DJ, and free skate rentals included with your ticket purchase, an evening at Rollerland is always a good time.
The Momiji Gardens, located on the south side of the Garden Auditorium building, along East Hastings Street, were completed in 1993. Momiji Garden is a celebration of the rich combination of the many people who make up Canada’s unique cultural mosaic and the remarkable history and contribution not only of our Japanese Canadians but of all Canadian citizens. Rocks and Japanese maple (momiji) trees, flowers and waterfalls, all in perfect harmony. A magnificent reflection of cultures coming together and signifying what it means to be Canadian. Momiji Garden at Hastings Park is for the enjoyment of all Canadians and their visitors.
Come dip your feet in the gushing fountains or gather around the large feast table for a family picnic. Pick up a game of bocce under the grape arbour. This Italian-styled garden features fountains surrounded by whimsical sculptures inspired by famous Italian operas. Pear trees and plantings of lavender and Italian cypress add to the Mediterranean feel. A large children’s play area is adjacent to the garden.
The sanctuary is a nine-acre forested area that replaced the former BC Pavilion site. Two ponds are surrounded by meandering pathways with bridges and a boardwalk – perfect for bird watching. Seating areas provide calming views over the ponds. The Hastings Park Conservancy runs free nature walks in the Sanctuary.
