  • Opening of Clareview arena delayed to 2014

    "In a city where available rinks were already scarce, one has been closed for nearly one year for renovations, while it was supposed to open later this year, it’s not, and some are not impressed.

    The Clareview Arena closed for renovations in May, 2012.

    The arena stands alongside where a new $100 million recreation centre, school and library will be built – the facility is set to open in early 2014 – the neighbouring arena was originally set to open before the new facility.

    Will be nice when this facility opens, as it'll take the presure off other rec centres and rinks

    A few friends who live up in that area are very excited to have a new facility at Clareview
    Over promise and under deliver. It’s the most Edmonton thing you can do.

        Well hopefully they get it open asap. I think the city has to really step it up for upgrading or opening new arena's too throughout the remainder of the city. I wonder if there is any room to build a 3rd rink at McCarfaa in Mill woods?
        LRT is our future, time to push forward.

          Would be nice to have some more options for ice time, sooner than later. Starting our games at 11:00pm gets to be rather late when you have to work early the next day.

            This library will be greatly used. It should take a lot of pressure off the Londondery branch in the mall

              Next major rec centre will be Bonnie Doon and or Coronation I believe.

              They want to close Tipton, Donnan, Oliver and Coronation rinks.

                I'm going to miss the old Coronation Arena. I lived blocks away and spent a lot of time there, including intramural hockey at Shep.

                Why in the world would we close Oliver?

                  I saw an add on the side of the bus saying the Clareview Rec Center will open soon, however I wonder if we should start a pool and pick dates when Clareview, Meadows Rec Center and the NAIT LRT will open. I'm going to pick April 1st 2015.

                      It looks like I will be wrong, they are hiring for jobs for Clareview and Meadows Rec Centers

                        So is the arena/rec center open yet? I do know that the Meadows Rec center is getting close. I hope that the next project is the Bonnie Doon rec center.

                            Inside looks absolutely gorgeous. I haven't seen The Meadows, but Clareview is definitely a lot nicer than Terwillegar, Commonwealth, Millenium, Van Vliet etc. The Library in it as well, just dynamite.

                            Should be the envy of the City, but it's also going to be the best connected to the LRT, so a large part of the City can easily access it.

                            Great work, ATB, Clarke, EPL, ECSD, and City! Hard to wait for because it's going to be so awesome.

                              Drove past there yesterday. It's a pretty neat looking facility.
