Uniting like-minded people and citizens at New Holland Island has always been an important objective of the project, along with the restoration of buildings and the development of the area. The events of recent years have once again reminded us how important it is not to lose touch with the loved ones, to support each other and to spend time together.

Admission for children under 14, pensioners, guests with disabilities and members of large families is free. To make the Community Center a convenient neighborly place, residents of Admiralty district will also be able to use the space for free with a special season pass.
