Murray & Piper Arenas
With two official NHL-sized ice surfaces of 200 feet by 85 feet, the Piper and Murray Arenas are a great choice for drop-in skating, shinny, tournaments, or even birthday parties.
The arenas accommodate competitive and recreational hockey, figure skating, family and public skating, and organized group activities. Seating capacity of the Murray Arena is approximately 1000 and the Piper arena seats 250.
The arena sees more than 25 user groups and over 4,300 registered participants utilizing the facilities annually. Ice surfaces have an active season from September to April. When some or all ice surfaces are removed in the spring, the concrete floors accommodates sports like roller hockey and lacrosse, as well as special community events such as the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
