St. Margaret's Centre offers two beautiful ice surfaces year round. The newly renovated (and renamed) Daniel Smith Arena was originally constructed in 1988 by the community and boasts an Olympic size surface (200’x100’).

The Fountain surface is regular NHL size (200’x85’). Not only is this arena one of the most comfortable community oriented arenas, it houses 1000 stadium style seats and provides propane coin-operated heaters for your comfort.

Please note that St. Margaret's Centre reserves the right to swap ice surfaces if necessary, to accommodate all rentals and utilize all available ice.  No rental is guaranteed a specific surface, and customers will not be notified should this be the case.  Please check the monitor at the front desk when you arrive.
