Lac La Biche County recognizes the contributions that recreation facilities and amenities make in improving residents and visitors’ lives. Our investment in the Bold Center and its surrounding grounds is an example of the County’s belief in recreation and building an active, connected community.
Portage Pool has served County residents well for approximately 30 years. However, due to its age and changing demands for aquatics, planning for a new aquatics centre is underway.
On September 2, 2020, Lac La Biche County received official word that the federal and provincial governments would provide financial support for a new aquatics facility at the Bold Center.
Developing a Concept Plan
The first step in the new aquatics centre is the development of a concept plan. The concept plan will identify the different amenities to include in the aquatic centre. It will also include the estimated costs to build and operate a new facility.
Public Input Opportunity is Closed
Public input regarding the development of the new aquatics centre has closed. Thank you to all who took the time to share their thoughts!
Survey responses are being reviewed and considered as conceptual plans are being developed for a new aquatics centre. This new aquatics facility will replace Portage Pool, and will be located at the Bold Centre.
Once a concept plan has been developed, it will be shared with the public. There will be an opportunity for the public to provide comments as well.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta.
