The North Peace Family SuperPark is expanding into a second location.
The non-profit announced on Monday that it's opening a new rec centre this summer geared toward pre-teens and teens. The centre, located next to its indoor playground on 100 Street, is planned to feature a video gaming centre, climbing wall, pool tables, basketball hoops and more.
"We are so excited," said Jaandi Roemer.
The expansion comes thanks to a number of a large donations over the last month, including $20,000 from CNRL. About half of that funding will go toward launching the new facility.
The group has also received $5,000 from Pembina Pipeline, and $4,500 from Enbridge over the last month. It's also received $10,000 from BC Hydro for a summer camp this year.
The SuperPark opened its first building in 2018 after six years of planning, with a focus on providing an accessible and inclusive playground for young children.
An expansion for teens is coming sooner than planned thanks to all the recent funding, Roemer said.
"We're very excited and very proud, and we have the community to thank for that," she said.
Roemer hopes to open on either August 1 or September 1, depending on how quickly she is able to set up the facility. Donations of equipment, games, and furniture are being accepted.
