Prince George, B.C. – Another Canada Winter Games legacy is being celebrated as the ice oval has two new buildings.One building will house equipment for the oval, while the other will be used by skaters to get into their skates.
The skate change building will be familiar to anyone who was the Canada Games Plaza during the Games, as it was the Canfor House.
Kathy Lewis, President of the Outdoor Ice Oval Society, is thrilled to have these new buildings. “I can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of skaters who come out next winter,” said Lewis, explaining that the Canfor House will be used as a skate change area for public skating. “Everything was outdoors before and now parents can tie their children’s skates in a warm building,” said Lewis.
The maintenance building is special as well says Lewis “It’s not just a building, it’s a customized building at ice level that meets our specific needs. For our volunteer maintenance crew, it makes their life so much easier.”
The outdoor ice oval is a 400-metre skating facility made with natural ice. The oval is maintained by volunteers of the Outdoor Ice Oval Society of Prince George with the support of the City of Prince George.
