Bear Creek RenovationsBCP Renovation

The Community Living Committee has recommended that the renovations for the Bear Creek Pool be awarded to Monteith Building Group Ltd. The renovation recommendations will go to Council for final approval on May 1st.

“The primary purpose of this pool will be for summer respite”, says Kylee Haining, Manager of
Recreation & Sport. “The expectation is that the facility would have high play value and that the
reopening of the outdoor pool will add to tourism and staycations which will benefit the economy.”

The total budget for the project was $5 Million with the construction tender coming in on budget at $4,492,500. The renovation will include updates to the building, a tot’s pool, zero beach, Spanish steps and lily islands, games area, lanes and jets for swimming and a waterslide. Attention was paid to the unique demographics of the Grande Prairie population in making sure the facilities meet the needs of the community.

“This is an exciting development for the community. It is anticipated that the construction will be forty
weeks with the pool open for the summer of 2018”, says Haining.
