Build Kamloops

Build. Grow. Connect. Repeat.

Build Kamloops is a multi-year, multi-phase visionary program to re-establish the city’s prominence as Canada’s Tournament Capital, foster our recognition as a premier arts and culture destination, and keep pace with our recreation and leisure needs as Canada’s third fastest-growing city.

The Build Kamloops Select Committee has identified five facilities to explore as part of the Build Kamloops program, starting with the Kamloops Centre for the Arts. Other facilities include an aquatics centre, a multi-sheet ice complex, an indoor dry floor/field facility, and a curling facility, as well as a seniors centre or community space in conjunction with one of these.

As more information becomes available on each of these facilities, they will be added below.


On June 27, 2023, Council voted to form the Build Kamloops Council Select Committee, which will provide Council with recommendations for the implementation of the strategies outlined in the Recreation Master Plan and potentially include other needed civic facilities. Four working groups have been formed with members of the public that will report up to the Build Kamloops Council Select Committee.

Have an indoor pickleball facility. It is great to play pickleball outside, but with forest fires and winter it is not possible.
