Facility Features

The recreation facility concept sets out to create a welcoming space to help cultivate a strong sense of community, promote health and wellness in our community, support the needs of locals and inspire new residential growth.

What kind of improvements will be in the expanded facility?

The design of the expanded facility is still in the very early stages. The renderings shown are a proposed concept only used to identify a "fit" within the existing architecture of the location. There will be consultation with user groups and other key stakeholders to identify the best options for design with a tender process for engineering to be awarded which will further explore and fine tune the facility design. 

Proposed facility improvements include:

  • Addition of a second sheet of ice to accommodate current and new user groups and activities;
  • Enclosing the Devon Community Pool, transforming it into a year-round aquatic facility;
  • Adding multi-purpose rooms, flex space, retail & concession space, upper level running track, plus other valued amenities.

​The project funding parameters include solar panels & an energy efficient ice plant, and other eco-friendly building assets, which will help reduce long-term operating costs. 

What types of activities will take place in the new facility?

There are many expanded uses of this type of year-round facility, which will bring greater economic stimulus to the community. A few examples are shown below: 

  • Sports franchises (such as lacrosse, basketball, soccer, swim clubs, etc.)
  • Various music concerts
  • Sporting events and tournaments (curling, hockey, gymnastics, soccer, ball hockey, etc)
  • Public assembly (religious gathering, graduations, political rallies, awards ceremonies, etc.)
  • Dry floor events (trade shows, consumer fairs, boat/home/garden shows, banquets, etc.)
  • Competitively bids or competitions at the regional, provincial and possibly national level.
