New Community & Recreation Centre
North Bay’s new community and recreation centre is currently in the design stage. Preliminary drawings and conceptual renderings for the facility, featuring dual-pad ice surfaces and other amenities, have been completed.
The design team from MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects Ltd. and North Bay’s Mitchell Jensen Architects have been working on the project for several months. That work has included stakeholder consultation.
Detailed designs will soon get underway. Construction of the new community and recreation centre, which will be integrated with the existing Steve Omischl Sports Complex at 1055 Lakeshore Drive, will get underway later this year.
Marc Downing, one of the lead architects working on the design of North Bay's new community and recreation centre, provides an update on the project.
A New Community and Recreation Centre will replace the aging West Ferris Arena and ensure the City continues to provide residents with the same level of recreational servies and opportuniites. The new facility will also add an ice pad to the City's existing inventory, helping to better meet demand as demonstrated through public consultation and the findings of a Multi-use Recreational Facility (MURF) Feasibility Study.
