TAYLOR B.C. – The District of Taylor is looking for a contractor to replace playground equipment at Daniels Park and a new concession operator for the District Ice Centre.

The municipality submitted both Request for Proposals (RFP) on May 14th.

The Ice Centre has been operating for 26 years and is located near other recreational facilities, including the Taylor Ball Diamonds and the Curling Complex.

“This 1,100-person capacity facility includes one NHL-sized rink, a separate leisure ice pad for public skating and an indoor play structure. In the ice off-season, it is available for large event rentals and has accommodated annually, renters such as the Fort St John Kennel Club Dog Show and the Spirit of the Peace Powwow,” says the RFP.

Throughout the Winter, the facility runs seven days a week, with minor sports being the major user.

Taylor is also seeking a playground supplier to replace the existing equipment in Daniels Park.

“The successful Supplier will be responsible for coordinating and supervising the removal and disposal of the existing equipment and site preparation for the new proposed equipment as well as the supply, delivery and installation of the proposed playground equipment,” the RFP says.
