Ice Rink Construction Begins

Concept A

Concept A

It’s been a long time coming, but construction of new Artificial Ice Rink (A.I.R) is underway.  Click here for some background and here for a list of suggested improvements and comments from FODP.

The rink, which is is presently in place, was built some 40 years ago and has come to the end of it’s life cycle.  The new rink – slightly re-aligned and expanded – will be ready for skating this winter.  The fieldhouse, also some forty years old, will receive a major facelift and all new mechanicals to service the ice surface and make it more comfortable and user friendly for the many skaters who use the facility every winter.  (See photos below)  Councillor for Ward 29 – Mary Fragedakis – has been working very hard with the Parks people and project manager to get this project underway … thanks Mary!

Here are a few snapshots of the final days of the old rink.  The white truck was there with a crew to install construction fencing across the southern side of the “dog area” to mark the extent of the construction zone.  ~ Ed Horner
