Kitselas Community Recreation Centre

The project will construct an approximately 1700 square meter two-storey community recreation center near Terrace. The building will include a theatre, multi-purpose rooms, fitness room, gym, and commercial kitchen and be an important gathering space for the Kitselas First Nation.

The project works will include:

  • community theatre;
  • outdoor amphitheatre;
  • cultural classroom;
  • weight room;
  • conference room;
  • gym;
  • commercial kitchen;
  • reception area;
