Welcome to your new facility!

We are so pleased to show off our new venue which houses an ice surface with 6 change rooms, 2 club rooms and arena spectator seating for 528, a fieldhouse with a 100’ x 200’ turf field with 4 change rooms and spectator viewing for 52, a 200m/2 lane track, a warm room, community meeting room and common areas.

The building is fully accessible with automatic doors, an elevator, accessible viewing areas for both the ice surface and fieldhouse and easy access to common areas including the track.

We offer several options for facility usage that include free opportunities and “pay as you go”. The Skate Schedules and Track Schedules can be found here.

Rentals are available for the ice surface, dry floor (in off season), track, field, and community room. Click here for information on booking a space.

Under COVID restrictions we are opening in a different manner than we envisioned when the project started and the health and safety of our facility guests and staff are of the utmost importance. We are closely following the recommendations of Public Health and have we implemented several measures that will help us to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Provincial Public Health Guidelines must be followed in the facility and participants must also abide by the regulations of their respective sport governing body. Those who choose to not follow the regulations will be at risk of losing their rental time for the entire group, including future rentals.

Children who are not in the care of a coach or program leaders must be supervised by a responsible caregiver at all times while in the facility.

The Facility

  • Facility doors will be locked, and users/groups will be let in by appointment only.
  • Groups are being asked to meet outside the building and enter as a group.

  • All participants are to congregate at the front entrance at the assigned appointment time. Please note that the front desk is not attended to at all times and may not be available to accommodate late arrivals. Please be sure to honor appointment times.
  • For contact tracing purposes, each rental group is required to have a list of participants with the contact information for each rental time. If contact tracing is required, it is the responsibility of the organizer of the program/rental to communicate with their members and to provide information to public health.
  • Participants will be allowed to enter the building 15 minutes prior to the start of rental/programs and must leave no later than 15 minutes after as staff requires time between each rental to clean and disinfect.
