The Black Creek Community Centre is run by the non profit Black Creek Community Association whose mission is to provide a range of affordable recreational, leisure and educational opportunities to the people of Black Creek and surrounding areas. They offer quality programming and community events that foster a healthy and engaged community.

The Black Creek Community Centre has been a tremendous asset to the area for over 50 years. As the association grows they aim to be the hub that maintains the vitality of Black Creek and helps build its sense of community. They also feel they help support the economic well being of the community by keeping the residents engaged locally and by drawing in residents from broader areas that increases awareness and appreciation for other businesses and attractions in the community.
