Jim Lind Arena is open to the community again, and looking better than ever, thanks to a $1.1 million upgrade at the 40-plus year old facility.

ABOUT THE RETROFIT

Renovations were completed between April 1 and September 16, 2013, with funding assistance from the Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan. The retrofit included:

  • 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 two major leaks in the past seven 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 per cent.
