Arenas and Community Centres

Update - September 17, 2020

Measures in place at arenas include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Self screening before entering the facility
  • Hand sanitization upon entry into the facility
  • Restrictions on the number of users on each ice pad and in arena changerooms
  • One-way entrance into the facility, individual ice pads and designated exits using directional floor markers to support physical distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning of the facility following each permitted rental
  • There will be no access to the general public or any spectators at this time

Peterborough Memorial Centre will reopen for community ice rentals starting Monday, September 21, 2020 as part of the next phase of the reopening of City arenas to the public.

Reopening the Peterborough Memorial Centre will add one more ice pad to the City’s active inventory in arenas after the successful re-opening of the Evinrude Centre for limited use starting Monday, August 3, 2020 and Kinsmen Civic Centre on September 8, 2020. The City has taken a gradual approach to the reopening of community arenas and the Memorial Centre to the public.

City staff are currently working with the seasonal ice user groups to finalize ice allocations for the 2020/21 Fall/Winter Season. Ice allocations are being adjusted to incorporate increased cleaning protocols in between rentals. After September 8, ice rentals may be expanded, based on availability, to include rentals to other user groups with COVID-19 Safety and Screening Protocols in place. The City is considering offering City-run ice programs with limited capacities, such as registered and drop-in programs and public skating, beginning mid-October.

Current safety protocols at arenas are being expanded to include the following changes effective September 8, 2020:

  • Group size limits increased to 22 from 20 maximum participants per ice pad, including on ice coaches/instructors.
  • Gameplay activity permitted – adhering to 22 participants per pad maximum – ensuring sport activity requirements of no prolonged/deliberate contact as per Provincial Regulations.
  • Spectator access permitted up to a maximum of one parent/guardian per youth under 18 years of age.
  • Lower viewing areas permitted for spectators.
  • Public washrooms open for spectators only.
  • Exterior doors remain locked with controlled access by City staff for skaters and spectators 10 minutes prior to permitted ice time.
  • Groups must exit no later than 10 minutes past permitted rental time. 
  • General public access is not permitted.

 

The City of Peterborough operates four arenas with a total of six ice pads, including the Peterborough Memorial Centre – our community's Major Sport and Events Facility.
