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.
Construction of the Rosemary Brown Arena is anticipated to be complete in 2022.
Funding for the $50 million facility comes from the City’s Community Benefit Bonus Fund.
