Recreation Centre

When it's time to unwind - or wind up.

Located at the heart of the community, the Mackenzie Recreation Centre is a hub for all things fitness and fun! We feel privileged to have such a robust facility which is home to our aquatic centre, weight room and cardio centre, ice arena, child’s play area, and the Mackenzie Public Library. In addition, our staff work hard to offer a range of exciting recreation and fitness programs and courses to help you explore, grow, and thrive every day. There is something for everyone!

We are greatly appreciative of the extensive community and financial support we have received for this project! Since 2015, the District has been awarded $5 million from the UBCM Strategic Priorities Fund Grant, $1.5 million from the McLeod Lake Mackenzie Community Forest, $250,000 from the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George (RDFFG), and $250,000 from the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) for a total of $5.5 million towards the new addition and energy saving upgrades!

What's in store for 2019?

We're installing a new climbing wall and active play space that will open in new year. Please check back for the official opening dates!
