Lakeshore Arena Looking for a Comeback

May 23, 2024

The City of North Bay has approved a $2.6 million contract to bring the new North Bay Community and Recreation Centre back to life. The city previously paused the project last year due to budget constraints and rising costs. The council is now proceeding with a revised project budget, which includes $26 million in federal funding secured under a Progressive Design-Build delivery model. 

The new recreation centre, which will replace the city’s existing West Ferris Arena, is expected to have the following updated amenities: two standard hockey rinks, a walk-run track, a community room and meeting space, and many more exciting features.
