Stakeholder Engagement Survey: Arena and Aquatics Complex Fundraising

The City of Peterborough is planning to build a Community Arena and Aquatics Complex to meet the immediate and future recreational needs of our growing community. As a recreational hub, it will include a new twin-pad arena and indoor walking track with a future phase for an aquatic centre, combining spaces for play, spectating, fitness and sports. We are asking Facility Stakeholders, regular user groups to the facility, to confirm their participation in our project through fundraising initiatives by completing the Stakeholder Fundraising Engagement Survey.

Ice and floor rentals are available at all of the community arenas. View ice pad availability online.
