The North Peace Leisure Pool is aging and its infrastructure is failing, resulting in service interruptions and other impacts on pool users. A plan is needed to replace or renovate the pool based on a solution that suits our community. This can also been seen as an opportunity to offer broader recreational activities for Peace River Regional District residents.
The PRRD (Area B and Area C), City of Fort St. John and District of Taylor are working together to explore options for a new or renovated facility to serve the North Peace region. To do this, the partners initiated a feasibility study in 2018 to determine the future of the pool and how to best address regional aquatic and recreational service needs going forward. This included asking residents about what they would like to see at a future facility. Residents shared lots of great ideas on how they use the facility and what recreational spaces and amenities they would like to see for aquatics, social spaces and other indoor activities. Now the partners are moving ahead with the next step in the feasibility study.
The Feasibility Study survey was open from June 7 – July 7, 2022 and is now closed. Check out the What We Heard tab to read the engagement report!
