The ​Hubbards Recreation Centre property was donated to the South Shore Regional Recreation Association (SSRRA) by the J.D. Shatford family in 1974 for community recreation. It was then transferred to the Halifax County Municipality 1990-1991 and then to HRM in 1994. The existing building was transported from the other end of Queensland and set on the property in 1974.

The property was transferred from the SSRRA to the ​Municipality of ​Halifax County in 1990, and then to Halifax ​Regional ​Municipality​ in 1996​. The Hubbards Area Recreation Association collaborates with HRM to manage and maintain the facility.
