Lac La Biche County recognizes the contributions that recreation facilities and amenities make in improving residents and visitors’ lives. Our investment in the Bold Center and its surrounding grounds is an example of the County’s belief in recreation and building an active, connected community.

Portage Pool has served County residents well for approximately 30 years. However, due to its age and changing demands for aquatics, planning for a new aquatics centre is underway.

On September 2, 2020, Lac La Biche County received official word that the federal and provincial governments would provide financial support for a new aquatics facility at the Bold Center.

Developing a Concept Plan

The first step in the new aquatics centre is the development of a concept plan. The concept plan will identify the different amenities to include in the aquatic centre. It will also include the estimated costs to build and operate a new facility.

Community Feedback: Share Your Thoughts With Us

Community engagement is very important for developing a concept plan. In the coming weeks, residents and community organizations will be asked to share their thoughts about what we should include in a new aquatics centre.

Look for this postcard in your mailbox in early February 2021. Your unique access code that you need to participate in this survey (linked here) will be on the postcard. Please share your thoughts on or before February 19, 2021.

The Aquatic Centre Concept Plan is scheduled to be completed in spring 2021.


This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta.
