Civic Plaza Enhancement Project
The City of Prince George is enhancing the Civic Centre Plaza to host celebrations throughout 2015 and beyond. The capital project will enhance existing space and introduce elements of public art, green space and natural components native to the region that will enhance the space both visually and functionally.
As the City prepares to celebrate its 100th Anniversary it is envisioned that the space will be utilized as a place for celebration of this historic milestone with numerous activities and events staged throughout the year.
The Civic Plaza will also be utilized as a main focal point during the hosting of the 2015 Canada Winter Games. The development of the space will see an opportunity to not only enhance the plaza but create an opportunity for a downtown atmosphere that will be inviting, festive and welcoming to the athletes and visitors during the Games.
The enhancement will be a lasting legacy in our downtown that will serve the community for years to come. The Civic Plaza currently plays host to numerous community and private events and through its redesign will create a more attractive and appealing space that will realize increased benefit and use.
