North Peace Leisure Facility Replacement Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The North Peace Leisure Pool is aging and its infrastructure is failing, resulting in service interruptions and other impacts on pool users. We need a plan for how we're going to replace or renovate the pool based on a solution that suits our community. But we also see this as an opportunity to offer broader recreational activities for our 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.


Jump in! Help set priorities

The current round of community engagement will further refine the public's preferred priorities for a new aquatics and recreation facility. The input will be used to develop recommendations to the project partners that will include:

  • potential recreational and aquatics amenities
  • anticipated operating and capital costs
  • space program, conceptual test fits with site options
  • governance and partnership options


The Feasibility Study survey was open from June 7- July 7, 2022 and is now closed. Read the engagement report for an outline of what we heard!
