Bon Accord Arena
4812 - 52 Street
In December, the Alberta government imposed mandatory restrictions that became effective December 8, 2020. These restrictions included closing of all indoor recreation facilities, and prohibited group physical activities including team sports, fitness classes and training sessions across Alberta.
At the January 5, 2021 Council moved “THAT Council direct administration to close the arena for the 2020 / 2021 season and remove the ice surface if there is no change to the provincial regulations by January 15, 2021. “
On January 29, the Alberta government extended the restrictions on indoor gatherings and group physical activities for an undetermined time.
Based on this announcement the chiller at the arena has been shut down and the ice will be removed shortly. With these restrictions in place, and no revenue coming in, it is not financially feasible to maintain the ice at the arena.
We are hopeful and look forward to seeing you all in the fall for the 2021 / 2022 season!
