Harvest Meadows Outdoor Rink Open House
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Servus Program Room | Level 1 | Abbey Centre | 4500 Womacks Rd

As part of the Multi-Plex expansion project, the outdoor rink (ODR) on the south side of the arena will be removed and relocated this year.

Since the recent completion of the ODR at Pine Cres in 2019, the Town agreed that the new ODR remain on the west side of Hwy 2A.

The Recreation, Culture and Parks Board deliberated on three possible sites and decided that Harvest Meadows offered the best area since it already has an existing parking lot, is centrally located, and has the potential for future development.

We invite the public to an evening of dialogue with Town staff and Council and provide us with your opinion on our plans and address any concerns or questions you may have.
