Gold Arena Construction update:
Saanich is undertaking a construction project at G.R. Pearkes Recreation Centre to replace the Gold Arena ice slab, ice melt pit, dasher boards/glass, arena netting, the flooring around the boards, and elevator.
The Gold arena will remain closed throughout. The remainder of the facility will be open during the project (Green Arena, Fieldhouse, Fitness centre etc.).
Demolition is expected to start in early April, and continue through until the Fall. Construction noise will impact the centre and surrounding neighbours, particularly during the initial phase of demolition. The project is expected to be completed Fall 2021.
Saanich is working as quickly as possible to expand permitted activities in a safe and gradual manner. Please visit our service resumption page here for more information.
