The proposed West Coast Multiplex vision was developed through consultation with various local stakeholder groups. The facility is expected to be completed in two phases. Phase 1 includes an ice arena, fitness room (funding dependant), locker rooms, storage, first aid station, skate & rental shop, and supporting amenities. The scope of Phase 2 may include swimming pool facilities to be decided at a later date.
It is the hope of the facilities’ organizers that the West Coast Multiplex will eventually be used as a multi-use meeting place and wellness facility for individuals and families of all ages.
Equal emphasis will be placed on:
Teaching and training
A secondary benefit of the West Coast Multiplex is the possible use as a higher ground, emergency shelter.
A multi-use facility of this type does not currently exist in our area making it difficult to attract and keep families who desire a more active lifestyle supported by recreation facilities that are provided as a basic community service.
Intended beneficiaries are all community members with a strong focus on programs for youth and seniors. Facilities will promote sporting events suitable to each venue, which will in turn benefit the communities in attracting sports tourism dollars in our slow seasons.
Possible West Coast Multiplex facility uses include: hockey, skating, roller derby, curling, soccer, wrestling, basketball, dry land training, physio/rehabilitation, celebrations, kids events, family events, corporate events, trade shows, seminars.
Who Will Use the West Coast Multiplex?
Nearly 6,000 West Coast Residents as well as many of our 800,000 plus guests the West Coast hosts every hear!!
