Arena - Jim Lind

At the Heart of Our Community

Jim Lind Arena is centrally located at Mount Boucherie Community Centre. The facility runs at nearly fully capacity from September to June, accommodating practices, games and tournaments in figure skating, hockey and ringette. The arena also offers public skating, drop in skating, hockey and ringette programs.

In 2013, Jim Lind Arena underwent a $1.1 million renovation designed to extend the life of the 40 year old arena for a further 25 to 30 years. Thanks to the Government of Canada for providing $250,000 toward the renovation under the Economic Action Plan.

Welcome to Jim Lind Arena - CWK Image
A new concrete ice floor
 
The original ice floor was built in 1974 and was expected to last up to 40 years. The floor has had 2 major leaks in the past 7 years, causing unfortunate service disruptions.

New rink boards
 
The boards, also built in 1974, are made of wood and are old and worn. The new boards will be metal frame and less susceptible to rot.

New rink glass
 
The current glass does not meet industry recommended height standards. New glass will meet these standards and will be seamless.

New rink lights
 
More efficient lighting will be installed, improving visibility inside the facility as well as reducing energy consumption by approximately 38%.
