Future of Penticton Arenas

Consultation has concluded

Penticton's arenas are operating at or near capacity and four are needed to sustain current levels of service and programs. With Memorial and McLaren Arenas in need of significant investment, Penticton must decide how to meet its arena needs for the future. The Arena Task Force was created to explore the options and prepare a recommendation for Council. Their 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. Staff are now working on a business case to study the feasibility of the vision and investigating funding options.

You can stay informed about the activities of the task force and share your thoughts through this site.

    Memorial Fieldhouse Concept Feedback Form

The drawings are now available on shapeyourcitypenticton.ca for you to view and share your feedback. Feedback will be collected until June15. Some of the key changes to be aware of include:

    • the change rooms and Zamboni room will be removed and replaced with entrances to the building
    • the bleachers will be removed to dramatically expand the court surface to accommodate a variety of sports and court configurations
    • the track on the second level will remain for walking and viewing
    • a multi-use surface will be installed and will feature an LED lighting system to mark the lines of the court for the sport being played (see the video)

    Please take a few moments to review the concept and complete this feedback form.
