At the Eva Rothwell Centre at Robert Land, we’re unabashed champions and cheerleaders for some of Hamilton’s best kids. We’re a home for innovative programs and services that are helping to make our North Hamilton neighbourhood an even better place to raise a child. And we’re in the business of inspiring bigger dreams and realizing unlimited potential.
The Eva Rothwell Centre officially opened in December 2006 when we took possession of the former Robert Land School. For 90 years, the elementary school had been the heart and hub of the neighbourhood.
When the school closed in 2004, a team of proud North End neighbours and concerned citizens rallied together. They shared a common goal of buying the school, transforming it into a much-needed community centre and reopening Robert Land’s doors to the entire neighbourhood.
In short order, the Robert Land Community Association enlisted the support of generous community partners who invested their money, shared their expertise and volunteered their time to give back to residents the hub and heart of their neighbourhood.
Today, the Eva Rothwell Centre is home to a ever-growing number of programs and services that are helping to improve the quality of life and enhance social wellbeing for an entire North Hamilton neighbourhood and some of the city’s best kids.
The Keith Neighbourhood has a wealth of assets on which to build a strong and healthy community, including:
- Great kids and families
- Great schools and dedicated teachers
- Great support from community partners
- A strong and active neighbourhood association
- Mars Park
- More than 60 employers in the immediate neighbourhood
The Eva Rothwell Centre at Robert Land is committed to bringing together community partners and leveraging the unique strengths of the neighbourhood.
