Peterborough, ON – Peterborough’s new community complex at Lansdowne and Park streets will be named the Miskin Law Community Complex through a $600,000 naming rights sponsorship that was approved by City Council on October 23, 2023.

The City of Peterborough will finalize an agreement for the naming rights for the community complex for 10 years, with the revenue going toward to the capital costs to build the new facility.

The community complex will include a twin-pad arena, a Peterborough Public Library branch, an indoor walking track, multi-purpose space, and office space that will be available for lease. A future phase would add an aquatics centre.

“On behalf of the City of Peterborough, I want to thank Miskin Law for this important investment in our community,” said Councillor Lesley Parnell, Chair of the City’s Arenas, Parks and Recreation Portfolio. “The Miskin Law Community Complex will be the City’s premier community complex, providing something for every member of our community, from children learning to skate, to adults walking the track, to seniors and students visiting the library. This is an investment in the health and wellbeing of Peterborough.”

Murray Miskin, senior lawyer at Miskin Law said, “Through sponsorship of this vital community facility, Miskin Law is sharing its success, and saying thank you to Peterborough for being our home. We hope that residents and visitors will enjoy using the Miskin Law Community Complex for many years.”

As part of the budget for the construction project, the City plans to raise $1 million through sponsorships of the facility to contribute toward the capital costs. The naming rights for the facility is a major milestone toward this target. Other naming rights for spaces within the facility, such as the naming rights for each of the ice pads, will also support the capital build.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on December 8, 2022 to officially mark the start of construction on the new facility. The facility is anticipated to open in fall 2024.
