The City is announcing a one-year naming rights agreement renewal for the Weyerhaeuser North Arena at Design Works Centre.

“We look forward to advancing our long-standing relationship with Weyerhaeuser for the north arena through the renewed naming rights agreement,” said City of Grande Prairie Mayor, Jackie Clayton. “The Weyerhaeuser North Arena has been a valuable community gathering place for participants, spectators and enthusiasts of ice activities since its initial naming in 2003. This is a legacy that we’re excited to continue throughout 2024.”

“Weyerhaeuser has always understood the importance of supporting our operating communities and we value our role as a partner and neighbor. Our employees take great pride in that, too,” said Ken McQuaig, Weyerhaeuser Grande Prairie mill manager. “The north arena is a hub for so much of Grande Prairie, including many of our employees, and we’re excited to renew our support of this important community centre.”

The one-year naming rights agreement renewal for the Weyerhaeuser North Arena supports the City’s ongoing commitment to building relationships with local organizations which contribute to supporting a strong quality of life for Grande Prairie residents.
