The Old City Hall, now used as the Port Moody Arts Centre, is a landmark institutional building, one and one-half storeys in height with a full basement, situated on its original site on the corner of St. Johns and Kyle Streets, a prominent location in Moody Centre. A stone cairn commemorating the arrival of the first train and the completion of the transcontinental railway is located on the grounds. The sloping site, which rises to the south, gives the building additional prominence.
