Items from the Red Deer Arena available for purchase

(Red Deer, Alberta)

This Wednesday, the public is invited to purchase a piece of the Red Deer Arena after the facility closed in April.

Many items from the arena were repurposed, moved to other City facilities or sold to other municipalities in Central Alberta, as The City works to retire the Red Deer Arena with environment top of mind. Items that have not been repurposed, such as the bench seating, will be available for purchase Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at the Red Deer Arena (4725D 43 Street) from 5 to 9 p.m.

Large items, including ice making equipment and the score clock, will be up for auction online and details provided after the sale. Any proceeds will go towards the construction of the new downtown arena.

The Downtown Arena Project involves decommissioning the Red Deer Arena and building a new modern arena in its place. The new downtown arena, set to open in 2018, will offer welcoming gathering spaces and an indoor walking track for the community. The new facility is also being designed to meet energy and environmental standards for a greener and more efficient operation. More information about the project is online at .
