The City has temporarily closed Mainway Arena as the result of unexpected repairs.

Two of the three compressors used at the arena to help maintain the ice surface have stopped working and require replacement. The new compressors are expected to arrive early this week with installation estimated for the Golden Horseshoe Tournament starting on Dec. 27 in Burlington.

Parents aren’t going to be able to take watch hockey games or skate free at the Mainway area until perhaps as late as the 27th.

“Ensuring Mainway Arena is open and available to ice users as soon as possible is a priority for the city,” said Chris Glenn, the city’s director of parks and recreation. “Plans are being made to accommodate ice users at other city arenas where possible.”

Residents with questions about their ice rentals scheduled at Mainway Arena can call 905-331-7465.
