Learn More About Grande Prairie's East Link Centre
The premiere facility in the city, the Eastlink Centre sits on the south side of the community and is home to a wide variety of things to do in GP. Officially completed in the year of 2011 the facility solved a big need that was beginning to develop. Grande Prairie had started to grow in size tremendously every year thanks in large part to the booming Alberta economy. Just recently the city nearly doubled in size meaning there was a much larger need for a community all-in-one facility like the Eastlink Centre.
With the Johnny MacDonald swimming pool and arena under constant maintenance the city moved forward with the multi million dollar facility and it's been widely used since it's opening.
