Laxgalts’ap Recreation Centre

 

The new facility functions as both a cultural and recreation focal point for the Nisga’a community locally in Laxgalts’ap (Greenville, BC) and the neighbouring villages. As such, it not only provides facilities for daily cultural, recreation and sports programs but also serves as a meeting place for the Nisga’a Nation for gatherings and celebrations.

The main hall is a full-size NBA basketball court with spectator seating, a performance hall with stage and a combination of retractable bleachers and fixed balcony seating. The hall will comfortably seat over 1000 people for feasts and have spectator seating for approximately 800 people for feast or other large gatherings.

An Elder’s Room, youth centre, fitness studio, aerobics studio, computer lab, classrooms, multipurpose rooms and a large kitchen to service both feasts in the main hall and a cafeteria are provided. The main foyer also functions as an exhibition space for either permanent or temporary exhibits.

VDA was Prime Consultant for this project.
