Forest City Gymnastics had an incredibly eventful 2017 – one that was filled with club firsts and massive growth! Starting the year off in our new facility at 2449 Dundas Street, where our space more than doubled in size to over 22,000 sq. ft. The move led us to growth in all of our programs as well. After four decades in London, FCGC is thrilled to be able to offer members of the community a whole new level in services and classes being offered.

Along with growth in our physical space, the club has also seen record numbers in both its Recreational and Competitive programs. With programs for both males and females, from toddlers to adults, there truly is something for everyone.

“We really hope that this amazing year is only the beginning, and we can’t wait to continue to offer the best in gymnastics programming to the people of London. To see what kinds of programs would be right for a member of your family, visit FCGC’s website at
