Construction Update

Big changes are coming to the Montrose Cultural Centre this summer! In the next 3 weeks, the City of Grande Prairie will soon begin a summer-long construction project to build the South Montrose Concourse. It will bring a green space with trees and benches running parallel to the south side of the Montrose Cultural Centre.
