Ed Whalen and Joseph Kryczka Arenas

Ice Removal

The ice at these arenas has been removed due to a mechanical failure. We will be working on upgrading the mechanical system until Sept. 30. It is tentatively anticipated that the ice will be back for regular bookings Oct. 1. If possible, ice bookings that were scheduled during this time will be moved to our other arenas. Southland Leisure Centre will be open for dry floor bookings leading up to Sept. 16. All other amenities at Southland Leisure Centre will continue to be open.
