The Koko Platz Community Centre experienced extensive fire damage to the clubhouse resulting in a total loss of the building in the Spring of 2021.
The Community Centre was covered for replacement value under the City of Portage la Prairie’s insurance policy, and we continue to work with our insurance provider on the replacement of the Centre. We will work with the Koko Platz Community Centre Board to rebuild the facility and expect updates on the timeline and plans for construction to be released in early 2022.
Due to lack of facilities, ice cleaning equipment, water access and ongoing COVID-19 related concerns, the Koko Platz Community Centre Board of Directors and City of Portage la Prairie have made the difficult decision not to construct an ice surface this winter.
The Koko Platz Community Centre and Arena is a community hub for various classes, activities and recreation and we look forward to seeing it operational again.
