Arena and Library Expansion

The new "Eagle Builders Centre" will soon be boasting an additional ice surface and Library and is the future home of the Blackfalds Bulldogs AJHL hockey club.

Arena and Library Expansion Efforts

The 2015 Recreation, Culture, and Parks Needs Assessment and Master Plan identified the need for an additional ice surface.

» Many similar sized communities have a twin arena.
» An additional ice sheet would address capacity and demand issues.

The 2018 Civic Facilities Development Strategy and Master Plan recommended:

» Planning for an expansion to the Multi-Plex to include additional indoor ice.
» Development of a larger library to support a larger and growing community.

In the development of this facility concept there have been meetings with the Recreation, Culture, and Parks Board; the Library Board; and the Dual Ice Development Society. Facility tours in Red Deer, Calgary, and Okotoks were conducted with the architect (ACI Architects), Town Council, and Town Administration.

Construction of the Eagle Builders Centre Arena and Library began in June 2020. See the final architectural concepts of the facility in the gallery below.

See the renderings and site plans from ACI Architects that were showcased during the September 12 Open House.
