Pat Bay Visitors Centre grand re-opening

The Pat Bay Highway Visitors Centre is officially re-opening to the public on May 15.

NORTH SAANICH — The Pat Bay Highway Visitors Centre is officially re-opening to the public on May 15.

Operated by the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, the building has been undergoing renovations since the Chamber announced earlier this year that they would once again open its doors. The Centre closed in late 2013. At the time the Chamber cited the expense of keeping it open, as well as building deficiencies as reasons for its closure.

The Chamber negotiated a better lease with the province for the site and will move their administration to the building to save money. Member donations of labour and materials helped get the Visitors Centre ready to re-open. The official ceremony takes place  Friday, May 15 at 11:30 a.m.
