The Dome (formerly known as the Roll-A-Dome) has a lengthy history in Prince George with providing venue and recreational services to our many friends of this community.
In the summer of 1979 the Curling Club leased the buildings to the Work family, where they installed wood floors and began a roller skating and recreational business. Officially in 1980, the Roll-A-Dome opened its doors. This trial run of the Work family leasing this space from the PG Curling Club went well and so Al Work continued to run roller skating for the community of PG.
The Curling Club left in the 90’s and when they did, that side of the building was set up as a permanent skateboard park with a ramp that was 40 feet long, 16 feet wide and 16 feet high! Along the way, there’s been all kinds of different activities held by all kinds of different people making all kinds of different memories for the City of Prince George. 2019 will mark 40 years that the Dome has been offering Prince George, and indeed, Northern BC, a centrally located, indoor venue with affordable rates; the original community centre.
The Work family has continued to keep this venue and the growth of it, community focused. As The Dome evolves, this will continue to be the focus for years to come.
