Village Square Leisure Centre Arena Upgrades

Thousands of people use the Village Square Leisure Centre Arenas on a yearly basis for Hockey Calgary bookings, public skating, programs and lessons, indoor summer skate parks, and roller hockey. Built in 1981, Village Square Leisure Centre facility is more than 30 years old, and served over 394,000 people in 2016.

The City’s arenas, built mostly between the 1960s and 1980s, have long been an important part of the amateur ice sport scene in Calgary. Some arenas are in need of upgrades to prolong the life and ensure the continued use of these facilities. Upgrades are part of planned lifecycle maintenance for City-operated arenas and respond to user demand, while improving the functionality and efficiency of our arenas.
