All Fort St. John rec facilities closed

As of March 18, 2020, all City Recreation Facilities are closed indefinitely in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic declaration from the World Health Organization. These closures affect the Pomeroy Sport Centre, including Visitor Centre, North Peace Arena, Kids Arena Fieldhouse and the previously announced closure of the North Peace Leisure Pool.

Additionally, this includes the cancellation of all programming, activities, private bookings and courses in these facilities. Also, the City-owned North Peace Cultural Centre and Fort St. John Curling Club are closed indefinitely. The health and safety of our employees, residents, and visitors is paramount, and we will continue to respond appropriately to this rapidly evolving situation.
