There's a new hangout spot now open for youth in Fort St. John.
A $20,000 donation from Canadian Natural Resources gave a boost to get the SuperPark Community Rec Centre up and running. A formal grand opening is set for Sept. 7.
"Canadian Natural Resources Limited is the very reason this adventure began!! The stars aligned and doors opened for the Community in a way we didn’t expected happening for years to come!" the centre wrote in a post to supporters on Facebook.
The rec centre is an expansion of the neighbouring North Peace Family SuperPark and its indoor playground.
The rec centre geared toward pre-teens and teens and features a video gaming centre, table games, climbing wall, pool tables, basketball hoops and more.
Both are operated by the non-profit North Peace Family SuperPark Society.
Learn more about the rec centre by visiting the SuperPark Community Recreation Centre on Facebook.
