Prince George, B.C. –  The Gymnastics facility at Exhibition Place is  in need of repair.

Although  the Prince George Gymnastics club has spent $75 thousand dollars upgrading the facility,  the aging tin clad  building needs  more help.

The club has asked city council to  add the facility to the list of City assets   for assessment.   The Club says there is a need for an immediate upgrade to the heating system and there are issues with the building’s exterior  and  ceiling.

The doors don’t probably seal,  and  the heating system is  failing.

The Club made three requests of Council:

  • Make the facility a priority  for asset assessment
  • Pending the outcome of the assessment  possibly engage other user groups to discuss a possible new facility
  • Upgrade the heating systems

City Manager  Kathleen Soltis  says the immediate  need  to  upgrade the heating will be examined  first.
