Prince George is getting ready to host the 2022 B.C. Summer Games and that means preparing facilities for the event.

A Prince George Civic Sport Facility Gap Analysis and Strategy, prepared by Allan Leadership, has identified several facilities that will need upgrading by the time the games roll around.

The analysis reported that a beach volleyball facility with two to four courts be built; Prince George Agriplex and Outdoor Riding Arenas – footing improvements and expansion of Outdoor Riding Ring; Towed water sports ramp – basic refurbishment of existing ramp currently located at Nukko Lake; Baseball and Softball facilities at Carrie Jane Gray Park and Freeman Park– Upgrades would include shale, grass, fencing, backstops and painting.

Council approved the construction of the outdoor volleyball courts, as part of the 2020 Capital Expenditure Program at a cost of $250,000. Additional facility upgrades will be included as part of the planning process during 2020 for recommended inclusion in the 2021 Capital Expenditure Program.
