History of Marpole-Oakridge Community Association

History of Marpole-Oakridge Community Association and Community Centre

Few people understand the history of our community centres or the effort it took to establish them.

In the beginning, it was the community associations who started the movement. Along the way, they enlisted the help of the Park Board. So began the partnership between community associations and Park Board.

Seventy years ago, “the seed and initial push came from a handful of local community-minded people who, in 1944, conceived of the idea that became the spark that ignited the community center movement for all of Greater Vancouver.”

And that movement started right here in Marpole.

Here is the history of the Marpole-Oakridge Community Association (MOCA) and the Marpole-Oakridge Community Centre (MOCC) that the association got built. It is the story of all Vancouver community centres and an important part of Vancouver history:
  • A 1957 report on the community centre which includes floor plans.
  • A 1950 narrative of the origins and early history of the community centre.

If we want to sustain and enhance this facility to serve the needs of our growing population, MOCA and MOCC need your input and assistance. For more info go to


MOCC Literacy Program

The COMMUNITY CENTRE invites patrons to assist in a new LITERACY initiative by dropping off books for young readers and adults to enjoy.The new bookcase provides FREE books to readers who will be encouraged to TAKE ONE, GIVE ONE.

Please drop off your book donations to the front office.

Thank you.

Winter 2014 - Incoming President’s Message

In November, 2014 the Annual General Meeting was held where the affairs of the Marpole Oakridge Community Centre were updated to the members.  It was gratifying to see a large gathering of the community. 

The major occurrence was the election of a new board.  We are fortunate to have retained prior members of the board as well as new members who are committing their time and attention to some major matters facing us in the future.  This will be a very effective board with a lot of experience in civic affairs.

Unfortunately, the issues of the Community Centre renewal and possible relocation remain unclear.  The messages from the outgoing Park Board and City officials have been somewhat confusing on the path forward.  It is reassuring to hear a commitment from the new Park Board Commissioners that re-establishing good working relationships with Community Centre Associations is a top priority.  We are eagerly awaiting to hear who our new Park Board liaison will be.  When that person is named,  we will begin the consultative process to discuss our options and the path forward.  MOCA has established a Renewal Committee to deal with the issue at hand.

The issue of the Pearson Dogwood development is also a concern.  The possibility of the 70,000 square foot YMCA and the addition of 5,000 plus people will have a big impact on our Community Centre.  We intend to be involved in those discussions. 

I am proud to have been elected as President of the MOCA Board and if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact me via  Thank you.

Best Regards,

Mike Burdick, President MOCA

Marpole-Oakridge Preschool

Marpole Preschool 604-257-8180 is recognized in the Early Childcare Education field as a leader and now has limited spots available for parents who want their child to experience play-based learning in a safe, caring environment.

Marpole Preschool provides a play-based program that implements emergent curriculum inspired by Reggio Emilia preschools in Italy. We develop our curriculum by observing what and how children play and by listening closely to their voices. Based on observations, we provide an experience or materials that guides children to further explore their interests and what they want to discover. We then make further observation and provide further experiences, and this cycle goes on to support children's learning.

We believe children are competent, resourceful, creative, and curious!

We support children's individual learning as well as encourage collaborative learning through sharing ideas and working together.
We are looking forward to working with your child and you, the guardians, as a team!
