The City of St. Catharines operates four arenas with eight 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.

Rink #4 at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre is temporarily closed while staff investigate an issue with its concrete pad.
City staff noticed the pad in rink #4 was heaving during the 2014/2015 season and removed the ice this summer to investigate the pad. Once the ice was removed staff realized the concrete pad was heaving more than previously thought, and have since been investigating to discover the cause.
The City will be bringing in consultants to assist with the investigation, but at this time there is no timeline for when rink #4 will reopen. A report will be presented to City Council this fall outlining the necessary repairs as well as the cost and timeline to complete the repairs.
Those with existing bookings for rink #4 will be contacted shortly by a Facilities & Special Event Administrator from the City of St. Catharines to discuss alternate booking options.
As we learn more about rink #4 it will be posted on this webpage.
