”The brand-new facility is sliding towards completion and the City of Chilliwack would like to invite the public to attend a celebration,” reads the news release. The event at the new facility is on Friday, Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. at 9291 Corbould Street.

With 650 active curling club members eager to try out the ice, not only will the new facility be well-used by curlers but it will also provide invaluable community space, in addition to many sheets of ice.

“Those eight sheets of ice are an exciting and long-awaited addition for our curling community, but this project is about more than curling,” said Mayor Ken Popove. “This new facility will benefit residents of all ages as it becomes a hub in our community.”

The new centre will include flexible space for a variety of options. In the spring and summer when the ice is gone, the main curling floor will be available for events and activities.

There will also be a viewing area on the main floor to watch the activity on the ice or dry floor, change rooms, a pro shop, kitchen and multipurpose room. On the second floor, it’s more viewing spaces, a covered patio, a meeting room, refreshment area and a multipurpose space. Washrooms will be accessible from outside for the convenience of those using the nearby playground.
