The presentation document is in the document library section of the project page.

The City of Peterborough is planning to build a new twin-pad arena and indoor walking track with future phases for an aquatic centre and third ice pad. As a recreational hub, it will combine spaces for play, spectating, fitness and sports. Supporting recreational opportunities through this new building and associated upgraded park space will enhance the quality of life for those who live and play in the city.

City Council has approved reviewing Morrow Park as the potential location for this new recreational hub. Among the considerations about the potential location, the project would include new driveway connections to Lansdowne Street, parking and phased changes to the balance of the park. Previous phases for this project included consultation with facility user groups on the interior design elements of the planned Arena and Aquatics Complex. The design would continue to include the following program elements that were previously approved by Council:

Phase 1:

  • A twin pad arena with 500 seats on each pad;
  • An elevated walking/running track;
  • 12 team change rooms and 2 official rooms;
  • A team training centre;
  • Office / Administration / Customer Service space for City staff;
  • Office space leased to sport group(s);
  • A concession stand;
  • Two multipurpose rooms;
  • Public washrooms, elevator and storage;
  • Landscaping and parking;
  • LEED certified construction standard;

Planned future Phase 2 - Competitive 8 lane pool with changerooms;

Planned future Phase 3 - Third ice pad expansion.

The purpose of the current phase of consultation is to engage with the community, and to hear comments and ideas, about the potential location for the arena and aquatic complex, expected travel patterns to the new facility, indoor and outdoor activities, and more.

Community participation

Feedback and ideas collected through a survey and other consultation activities were reviewed by the project team as it prepared recommendations for City Council’s consideration on next steps for the project.

A virtual public information session was held on Wednesday, April 28, 2021. See the slide presentation with the interactive mentimeter results under Project Documents to the right.
