“The superpark is a go; it’s in black and white,” says Roemer. “It’s being built in addition to a multiplex.”

The construction of a multiplex is a project that’s been discussed by City Council for sometime now, and the superpark will be built directly inside with a number of other facilities for both children and adults, says Roemer. The city says this is contingent on whether or not they decide to build the multiplex.

“We had a meeting with the regional director and the mayor, and we’ve had some talks – just planning things out,” explains Roemer.

The superpark initiative has gathered over $38,000 to-date, according to Roemer.

Roemer announced the superpark confirmation to a large crowd during Saturday night’s Hollywood themed Masquerade Ball at the Lido Theatre – another fundraiser for the facility.

“We have a sold-out event again – which is really exciting,” Roemer goes on to say. “So the superpark wants to thank the community for their support helping sell-out this event.”

The Masquerade Ball was a night of drinking and live entertainment geared towards the adults of the Peace – a change from the typical youth-oriented events put on by the superpark, explains Roemer.

“There’s lots of lights, we’ve got our own paparazzi, we’ve got lots of costumes; lots on-the-go so you definitely feel like a Hollywood star when you come.”

Roemer says she plans to hold another Masquerade Ball next year at the Lido for the third-time running.

“I look forward to it again next year,” says Roemer. “Same time, same place.”

Roemer says she can’t confirm when construction on the superpark will begin, and also says she’s still in the process of securing partners to help with the finances and logistics.
