The City of Brandon’s Community Services Department and the Valleyview Community Centre Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the new Valleyview Community Centre ice rink and warm-up building will officially open for public use as of 6 p.m. today.
The construction of a new ice rink and four-season comfort building was part of the City of Brandon’s larger Valleyview Recreation Hub project, an overall investment of approximately $980,000 into the community. The new ice rink measures 53 metres by 23 metres and the warm-up building is fully accessible and connected to the Centre’s washroom facilities. The provision of Hydro poles and flood lighting for the ice surface was salvaged from the centre’s previous rink facility.
The City of Brandon would like to take this opportunity to express its thanks to all the Valleyview Community Centre volunteers who have spent countless hours preparing the ice surface over the past month, including the addition of all paint markings.
Meanwhile, a grand opening for the overall Valleyview Recreation Hub project, which includes an 18-feature spray park and various greenspace enhancements, will be held in the spring.
