Ammonia chiller at Mount Boucherie Recreation Complex to be replaced thanks to grant

The 21-year-old ammonia chiller at Mount Boucherie Recreation Complex will soon be replaced thanks to a $442,000 grant from the provincial government.

“We are extremely grateful to the Province for supporting the City of West Kelowna’s application under the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program,” said Mayor Gord Milsom.

“This will ensure that we keep with the safe operating requirements in this important multi-purpose facility that serves the Greater Westside.”

Both Royal LePage Place and Jim Lind Arena will close on Monday, May 17 to accommodate the installation.

It’s expected that Royal LePage Place will reopen to the public on Aug. 2, while Jim Lind Arena will do the same a week later on Aug. 9.

The arenas are a massive part of the West Kelowna community that attracts thousands of users throughout the year.

The City thanked all who do use the rinks for their understanding while this much-needed replacement is completed between May and August.
