The Woolwich Memorial Centre (WMC) at 24 Snyder Avenue South in Elmira, built in 2009 is the Township's newest state-of-the-art facility comprised of two NHL-sized ice surfaces, two pools, a fitness centre and walking track.

On Monday January 18, 2016  Council of the Township of Woolwich passed a Smoke Free Policy which states that smoking cannot occur within 10 m of an entrance or exit or on a pathway or walkway to a facility. This means that all walkways and sidewalks leading from the parking lots to the WMC entrances are smoke free. Facilities staff are working to set up smoking areas for patrons of the facilities who wish to smoke.
