North Peace Leisure Pool Replacement Study

Overview

The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) in cooperation with the City of Fort St. John and the District of Taylor are exploring ideas for a new Recreational Facility in the North Peace Region.

The North Peace Leisure Pool is aging

A replacement facility will include spaces for aquatics, and may include additional recreation amenities, and social spaces. The PRRD is conducting a feasibility study exploring ideas about where the facility could be located, and what spaces and features could be included within it.

Planning starts now

The PRRD, City of Fort St. John, and District of Taylor want to understand the interests and preferences of the people who live here. We are engaging the public to ensure decisions relating to the project reflect the needs, values and identity of this Region. The information gathered from community input, along with other research that will be done will help to inform the feasibility study.

Take Part!

Tell us what you would like to see at your future North Peace Leisure Pool/Recreation Facility!
