about 2 years ago

The City is hosting workshops to explore reconfiguring Memorial Arena for dry floor uses. Representatives from lacrosse, pickleball, tennis, volleyball, roller derby, skateboarding and MORE are invited to participate in one of the following workshops:

Jan. 25 6 pm to 9 pm 249 Westminster Avenue

Jan. 26 9 am to 12 pm 249 Westminster Avenue

In addition to getting a better understanding of the potential uses and demand for space, attendees will also help identify the requirements for the space and participate in a design exercise. Email if you would like to participate. Please note these are structured workshops, registration is appreciated.

Information gathered through the workshops will be part of a business case underway to study the feasibility of the vision for the future of Penticton’s arenas. The vision proposes a new twin-surface, multi-sport facility on the SOEC campus, conversion of Memorial Arena to a dry floor facility and the eventual decommissioning of McLaren Arena.
