Dawson Creek City Council has announced that the Memorial Arena and the Kin Arena will be open once again on October 13. The facilities were initially expected to be open in November, however the freon ice plants will be in service sooner than anticipated.
In a release Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead said “I am extremely happy to see the early completion of our Arenas and Curling Rink ice plants and the reopening for booking schedules. I would like to welcome all users back to our community facilities and thank the entire community for their patience as we worked to rebuild the ice plants, ensuring recreational activities for many years to come. The spirit of our community was outstanding throughout this difficult time and will not be forgotten.”
The Memorial Arena and the curling rink were forced to close last year after ammonia contamination.
