Two new Surrey ice arenas to break ground in 2017

New sheets of ice coming to Surrey's Cloverdale and Bridgeview neighbourhoods.

The City of Surrey plans to break ground on two new civic recreation facilities early next year - and both include new ice.

SURREY — Mayor Linda Hepner said the city is making headway on new civic recreation centres in Cloverdale and Bridgeview – both of which include ice sheets.

“We’re in the midst of completing the design elements of both,” she said, adding the city plans to have shovels in the ground in early 2017 for the two projects.

The North Surrey Arena will be rebuilt on city-owned land at 12780 110th Ave., just west of Scott Road SkyTrain Station.

In Cloverdale, the city will be adding two sheets of ice in a new facility.

Hepner told the Now the city just chose a location for that facility – on 62A Avenue opposite the skate park on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.

Phase one of this facility will include two arena surfaces, though it will be designed to accommodate two additional sheets to meet future demand.

This will not replace the existing Cloverdale arena, which will remain operational for the time being.
