Community and technology create an environment-friendly footprint at this 'next-level' arena
This innovative facility will support the recreation needs of our growing city and offer Burnaby residents more options for fitness and community involvement.
The 8,500 sq. m (92,000 sq. ft.) arena will accommodate ice sports as well as lacrosse, ball hockey, inline hockey, community events and city-run programs.
Located at 10th Ave and 18th St, the facility will include:
- two NHL-sized rinks
- a skate shop
- a concession
- meeting and multi-purpose rooms
- warm-side arena viewing
- an outdoor rooftop patio
- universal gender neutral washrooms
Sustainable design features and water conservation strategies will help minimize the Rosemary Brown Arena’s environmental footprint. The arena roofs will feature north-facing windows to provide natural light and a feeling of connection to the outside.
Electric vehicle charging stalls and parking for bicycles will also be available for visitors.
Funding for the $50 million facility comes from the City’s Community Benefit Bonus Fund.
