Did You Know?

Brock and Valleyview Arenas allow patrons in wheelchairs on the ice during public skate sessions. Helmets are mandatory for the person in the wheelchair. The wheelchair attendants must wear a helmet and skates.

Wear a Helmet

Brain injury is the number one killer and disabler of people under the age of 45. Wearing a C.S.A approved helmet is the easiest way to prevent brain injury while on the ice.

Green Recreation The City of Kamloops takes living, working and playing green seriously. We’ve been working hard to think about sustainability in the way we offer and support recreation.

Check it out!

HealthFare Restaurant •H  ealthFare’s 5th location at TCC opened on September 29th, 2017. • The restaurant’s mission is to serve real food with real ingredients that can be prepared quickly. HealthFare believes that no one should compromise their diet because of their busy schedule. • All packaging is compostable and all appliances in the kitchen are Energy Star Certified. •P  op by for a bite or smoothie after a workout, swim, or run!

Holiday Waste Reduction

• Wrapping paper, christmas trees, left over food -- the Christmas holidays can be full of waste! Here are a few tips to help you reduce your holiday waste: •R  ecycle your christmas tree. To find a drop off location, please visit: www.kamloops.ca/garbage/christmastreerecycling.shtml • Recycle wrapping paper or use newspaper to wrap gifts. • Share leftovers so Holiday food doesn’t go to waste.

“Green” Ice - Greening our recreation facilities • All edgers (used to remove ice build up against arena boards ) are now 100% battery electric. • 3 of 6 sheets have been upgraded to the REALice® system that eliminates the use of hot water, reducing natural gas consumption for ice production and reducing compressor run time. • McArthur Island uses recovered heat from the ice plant to melt the snow in the pit. • Lighting upgrades at Valleyview and Memorial arenas, with more being planned in the future. • The Sandman Centre’s primary ice resurfacer has been 100% battery electric since 1993, the first one in BC!

Peterson Creek Path - The Inside Scoop!

• The path is expected to be completed in June 2018 and ready for use shortly after. •  The project will connect the City Centre and Sahali areas via a safe, aesthetically pleasing route. It is expected that over 300 cyclists will use the path daily. Historical and cultural signage may be incorporated along the route. • The shift to sustainable travel modes reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves health and wellness for Kamloopsians, and provides opportunity for access to parks and natural areas.
