How we operate the current pool together and looking into the future
Partners in the Existing North Peace Leisure Pool
Did you know that the current pool is owned by the Peace River Regional District and operated by the City of Fort St John? As a result of the City/Regional District partnership, the North Peace Leisure Pool is currently funded by PRRD and City property taxes, along with facility user fees.
The pool has served our region for generations. It provides fun, recreational activities for all ages. Kids learn to swim, families enjoy leisure time together, seniors, lap swimmers and others are able to stay active and fit, patients rehab from injury, individuals and teams train and compete and some just enjoy a hot soak or steam. The number of kids who have hosted birthday parties at the pool is enormous!
On average, the pool hosts more than 100,000 user visits annually. Here‘s a breakdown of typical annual use
- 57% Admission Public Swim
- 25% Red Cross + Lessons
- 6% Swim Club
- 5% Aquafit
- 4% Lap Swims
- 2.5% Showers, Cardio, Hot Spots
The pool is well used by residents from across the region. About 60% of users in a recent year came from Fort St. John, while about 40% came from Taylor and Electoral Areas B and C.
