Arenas & Ice Rinks

The City of St. Catharines operates three arenas with seven ice pads conveniently located throughout the city. They provide citizens and visitors with the opportunity to get involved in a wide variety of healthy activities for all ages and skill levels and to contribute through community events as spectator or participant. These include recreational and minor hockey, public skating, figure skating, lacrosse, tournaments and special events.


Bill Burgyone Arena Repairs 

Bill Burgoyne Arena is closed effective immediately for emergency repairs to its brine distribution system.

Why is it closed?

When City staff installed the ice at the arena this fall they noticed a small leak in the pipe for its brine distribution system. Staff put plans in place to repair the leak but the pipe burst before repairs could be completed, resulting in the failure of the brine distribution system.

When will the arena open?

The arena could open in as soon as three weeks, but a definitive timeline will not be known until the repair work begins.

What about bookings made for the arena?

City staff have begun to contact affected user groups to make alternate arrangements for their bookings. All public skating at Bill Burgoyne Arena is cancelled.

Where else is public skating available?

Public skating is still available at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre and the Garden City Arena Complex.
