Gingolx Memorial Recreation Centre
The Gingolx Memorial Recreation Centre (GMRC or Rec Centre) is the community’s largest gathering place. Throughout the year it provides a venue for sports games and tournaments, regular recreation programs, cultural gatherings, weddings, feasts, and other community events.
Every four years, the GMRC provides space for the Nisga’a Nation Special Assembly and for Hobiyee, the Nisga’a New Year celebration that takes place in February or March. These events cycle through each of the Nisga’a villages, giving each community the opportunity to be hosts on a four-year rotation.
The GMRC holds up to approximately 600 people at table seating, and up to 750 for a sporting event.
The top floor of the GMRC holds the Fitness Centre.
