The PCA is focused on building a vibrant community and quality of life for our residents and the city of Calgary. Our outdoor hockey rink is at the end of its usable life and has qualified for a lifecycle fund replacement with the City of Calgary.  The PCA is taking this opportunity to create a project which will transform the community for generations to come. We are redesigning our social area, along with the rink replacement, to create access inclusive of people with all abilities.

Specifically, we want to be the first outdoor hockey rink in western canada that is fully sledge hockey accessible! We love how outdoor hockey brings boys and girls, young and old, new and experienced together. And we want everyone to enjoy this opportunity together. To accomplish this, we need to design and fund our social area replacement, as well as a significant portion of our rink replacement. The scope includes the rink replacement, lighting replacement and the addition of a locker room, creation of accessibility from both parking lots to the change area and to the rink.  

These social space upgrades have the potential to be a game changer for the community by bringing people together, growing the volunteer base and making grassroots hockey, recreational skating and community place making a success for generations to come. This project will enhance the financial viability in creating new programs and rental opportunities. Parkdale is celebrating 65 years and this project is building for the future and the next 65 years.
