These washrooms will be closed following the Thanksgiving long weekend.

The city is also reopening nine more arenas in October, making them available to team and community users. Ice will be available to rent at the following arenas as of the noted dates:

The following arenas are currently open: Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex (both ice pads); T.M. Davies Arena; Garson Arena; and the Raymond Plourde Arena.

A report to city council in August outlined the planned approach to arena reopenings. It indicated the city would identify the number of pads to reopen based on demand for ice time. The full report is available at
