Some construction at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre is coming to an end. The City of Red Deer facility will be reopening this weekend on Sunday, June 26 with most amenities available. 

Construction will continue until full project completion in early 2023. There will be changes to these amenities:  

  • The Fitness Room will not be available; some larger pieces of existing fitness equipment will be temporarily moved to the “mall area” until the grand opening of our new health and wellness spaces in 2023. Use of this equipment will require a daily admission or monthly pass.
  • Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.

Here are just some of the changes visitors will see when the facility is complete:

  • Two NHL standard ice surfaces
  • Expanded fitness area, with running track and two fitness studios
  • Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
  • Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
  • Additional parking
