Downtown Arena Project - September 2016 Update

September 19, 2016 10:44 AM

The former Red Deer Arena was demolished this summer and crews are beginning the process to build a new Downtown Arena in its place. The new Downtown Arena is expected to open in 2018 and will be The City’s premier spectator arena. Construction of the new Downtown Arena is being live-streamed online at

Happening until the end of October 2016:

  • Excavating the site to prepare for the foundation of the new Downtown Arena.
  • Installing rebar and pouring concrete for the new arena foundation.
  • Installing underground utilities.
  • Equipment will be stockpiling materials behind the Pidherney’s Centre while foundations are being installed. This material will be reused to fill around the new foundations.
