Open house for Carrie Jane Gray Park refurbishment plans

The City of Prince George is inviting the community to attend a public open house to discuss and choose a concept plan for the extensive multi-year refurbishment project at Carrie Jane Gray Park.

The event will take place at the YMCA on June 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Community members are encouraged to attend, learn more about the project, provide input, and help shape the future of the park.

Carrie Jane Gray Park, a centrally located 40-hectare sports hub, that includes baseball and softball diamonds, BMX track, beach volleyball courts, Masich Place Stadium, a skate park and more, is undergoing a transformation aimed at modernizing its facilities to meet premier athletic park standards.

This refurbishment plan is designed to enhance the park’s ability to host local, provincial, and national sports competitions, making it a central part of the Prince George sport and athletic community.

Phases of the Project:

  • Phase One: Concept plan development, currently in progress.
  • Phase Two: Creation of a construction-ready design package.
  • Phase Three: Construction contingent on Council’s approval during the 2025 budget deliberations.

In May, the city engaged with key user groups through a focus group, including representatives from Prince George Youth Baseball, Spruce City Men and Minor Boys Softball, Prince George BMX, and Senior Men Baseball, as well as other sport field users including representatives from football and soccer. Their feedback has been instrumental in identifying areas for improvement and shaping the draft concept plans.

Now, the city seeks broader community input to ensure the chosen concept plan aligns with public needs and preferences. Residents can review the concept plans and participate in an online survey on the City’s website from June 27 to July 31, 2024.
