About Us 


Whittington Park Community Association (WPCA) is a community centre that was established by local people in 1972.  One of its first projects was to build an adventure playground in Whittington Park.

Today, our services include an Early Years Hub with a community nursery, a Childminders' Drop In and Stay and Play sessions, an after school club and holiday playscheme, a Youth Club for 13-19s, a social club for 55+ and a men's social club.

We host a wide range of classes for all ages including yoga,  tai chi, a free seated exercise for our older users, Argentine tango and ballroom dancing, pilates, and zumba. Please click here to see our timetable.

Our halls and rooms are available for hire for meetings, classes and social events.  Hire income goes towards the running of the centre and all its services. So when you rent space here you're directly helping this community organization to continue its work.

We are a partner community hub in the Octopus Community Network (OCN) Click here to find out more OCN.
