WINNIPEG — The new multi-pad Seven Oaks Arena development at the Garden City Community Centre is officially open.
Dignitaries from the city and province held an opening ceremony over the weekend. The city contributed $5.67 million to the project, which meets the demand for increased ice time in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The facility includes two 85 x 200-foot ice surfaces for year-round use, dressing rooms and showers, team storage rooms, meeting rooms, and leasable space for retail and athletic and high-performance training.
Other amenities include an open community gathering area with workstations, Wi-Fi access and public seating, a walking track and full-service canteen with lounge seating.
The project was first announced in February 2013.
