Fort St. John’s newest recreation complex, the Pomeroy Sport Centre, is a beautiful ice facility and sport event centre unparalleled in British Columbia. It has been designed to create a lasting legacy that will shape the future of the Energetic City for years to come. It is a centre of excellence for sport, promotes community and personal wellness, and provides an attractive venue for events appealing to a wide range of interests.
The first floor of this three-floor facility features 2 NHL sized ice rinks, a concession, skate sharpening vendor, 12 dressing rooms, and a public meeting room.
The second floor is home to a Booster Juice outlet, a meeting room, and has one of only four indoor Olympic-sized long track speed skating ovals in North America (others being in Utah, Wisconsin and Calgary). Made with a concrete base, this level can also be used for other events with 60,000 square feet of usable space during non-ice seasons.
The third floor of this facility is home to the Northern Vac Track. The walking track is 340 meters around with heated tubing throughout. There are lockers located along the side of the walking track to allow for client storage for its patrons to use free of charge if they bring their own lock. Council decided in the fall of 2009 to always have the track free for the public to enjoy.
Our remarkable facility also can have all ice surfaces removed during non-ice seasons to accommodate major indoor sport and cultural events, tradeshows, and more. The total event space available is in excess of 140,000 square feet.
