Canada Games Aquatic Centre goes live

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops is pleased to announce the launch of its innovative live-streaming facility webcams in the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, located at the Tournament Capital Centre. The new webcam will allow facility patrons to view overall aquatic centre activity levels from a distance. Since the Canada Games Aquatic Centre is growing as a national-level and regional event-hosting facility, the webcam will also serve as a marketing tool for the Tournament Capital Centre.

With the TCC Fieldhouse and Canada Games Aquatic Centre webcams up and running, the City plans to install a third live webcam of Hillside Stadium prior to BC Lions Training Camp in June. The fourth and fifth live webcams will be installed at McArthur Island Sport & Event Centre ice rinks this summer. All City facility webcams provide live-streaming from a distance and cannot be used for surveillance or security purposes.

The webcams can be viewed anytime at www.kamloops.ca/webcams.
