The Bold Center is a state-of-the-art multiplex in the hamlet of Lac La Biche that takes the best aspects of recreation and community centres across Alberta, and brings them together in one combined facility. With about 250,000 square feet of recreational space, the Bold Center is Lac La Biche County's big and bold way of encouraging an active and healthy community.
The Bold Center opened its doors in 2011 and now acts as the headquarters for the County's Recreation and Community Enhancement division. The facility sets the bar high as a recreational and social hub for the County, where everything from sports tournaments to business workshops can take place under one roof. We invite you to come and see what we mean when we say, "Life happens at the Bold Center."

The Bold Center continues to evolve, and the Stuart MacPherson Public Library and J. A. Williams High School are part of the multiplex. The County shares facilities and resources with these important community partners. The County and Northern Lights Public Schools have a Joint Use Agreement to balance the needs of local students and members of the public accessing the multiplex. The Bold Center is also home ice for the Portage College Voyageurs men's hockey team.
