Deer Park Golf Course Clubhouse Conceptual Planning

Project description

In 2019 the City of Yorkton conducted an Indoor Recreation Facility feasibility study with aodbt Architecture and Interior Design. In addition to the replacement of the Kinsmen Arena, the Deer Park Clubhouse was also identified as being a facility that has reached, or is nearing, the end of its useful life. As a result, City Council has tasked administration with developing a concept plan and a high level cost estimate for replacing the existing Clubhouse.

Gallagher Centre Renewal Project

Project description

In 2018 the City of Yorkton began a planning exercise to explore rehabilitation and enhancements to the recreation infrastructure that serves our community, with a focus on the replacement of the Kinsmen Arena.

In October of 2019, Council directed administration to develop a design for a second ice facility that would be attached to the Gallagher Centre and advance to the Pre-Design step of the process. The Pre-Design step moves from a high level conceptual plan to a more detailed design, including specific layouts of spaces and details. The hope was to obtain more accurate costing from a more detailed design.

A community engagement process was implemented to help gain input and provide feedback to Administration and the Consultant team. This included:

  1. Input sessions were conducted with regular users of the Kinsmen Arena.
  2. Virtual input sessions with users to continue with the design process through the pandemic.
  3. Presentations with Council.
  4. A Virtual Open House of the proposed design was placed on YouTube and a digital feedback process was available for one month after the videos were posted.
