About the Bob Watson Community Room

Located in PenFinancial’s Fourth Avenue branch in St. Catharines, the Bob Watson Community Room is here for members of the community to gather. It’s a co-operative, comfortable, safe, and accessible meeting space – and it’s available at no cost for not-for-profit organizations and community groups from Niagara and Haldimand.  

The room incorporates design elements reflective of the Niagara region such as wood accents and bespoke lighting that pays homage to the wine region - making this a Truly Local space.

Features include:

  • Self-contained meeting area
  • Comfortably seats 20 people (maximum capacity of 40)
  • 24 additional stacking chairs available for classroom style seating
  • Modular tables
  • Projector and white board
  • Fully accessible restrooms
  • Prep kitchen (with sink and fridge)
  • Close to many great local restaurants for catering or breaks

(Please note that, for evening meetings, someone from your group must arrive during branch hours.)

If you’re interested in viewing the facility prior to booking your event, feel free to pop by the Fourth Avenue branch during business hours and speak with someone on staff. They will be happy to give you a quick tour. Alternatively, complete the booking form and make note you would like to arrange to view the room in advance.
