I was very excited to see the news last night that the ice rinks under construction at COP (Canada Olympic Park) are going to open AHEAD of schedule and are expected December 2010. The fourth rink, the 3,000 seat Olympic sized rink is expected in phase 2 to be completed in 2011.
The three rinks to be completed this December are going to be utlized for minor hockey and recreation. That is amazing news for the very very many hockey, ringette and skating moms and dads that are currently driving all over town. According to the article this morning in the Calgary Herald, 75 per cent of the ice in two of the rinks will be dedicated to public access -- including minor hockey.
What a great facility in our community to keep our children active and engaged (and out of trouble!). :)
