With its NHL regulation ice rink and spectator seating, the arena in Kensington Complex offers ice skating and other ice sports, including hockey and figure skating in the fall and winter, along with skating camps during winter school breaks. In spring and summer, the ice is removed and the rink is converted to dry-floor use for in-line skating, lacrosse and summer camps.
