City makes minor progress on mega park

The proposed Prince George Rotary Destination Park, or the “Mega Park” is one step closer to becoming reality.

At last night’s (Monday) City Council meeting it was agreed the park is something the majority of the community wants and is excited about.

A movement was made for more information regarding the ongoing operational costs and financial implications of running and maintaining the park to be gathered.

The park, proposed to be built on Ospika Boulevard and 22nd Avenue near the CN Centre, would be funded by donations from the Prince George Community Foundation, the Rotary Club, and Colliers Project Leaders.

Councilor Cori Ramsay suggested the park might have the potential to end up being an attraction that helps the city’s bottom line.

“The potential economic development opportunities, the tourism draw that will bring economic dollars into our community, that is a really important aspect to look at.”

During the discussions, Councilor Kyle Samson added “overall, it sounds quite positive from the public, and I see why. This park is going to provide a whole new destination for residents in our community.”

2,244 Prince George residents were surveyed about the park, the majority of which approved of the location and idea. Information on the poll can be found here.
