Players Hit the Ice at Marysville Arena This Weekend


The City of Kimberley is happy to report that Marysville Arena will open its doors to the public this weekend. After several delays due to the asbestos abatement project, skaters can finally lace up their skates at the facility.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience as we worked through the many issues at the arena,” said Nicole Halasz, Manager of Parks and Facilities. “We know it was tough for many users in Kimberley to take, but the work was necessary in order for us to be able to let the staff and public back in the building. This is one of the largest asbestos abatement projects that our contractor had ever seen. It was not an easy job. I’m happy to report the work is complete and the arena is open.”

A hockey tournament begins on Friday evening. All other user groups will be contacted about their scheduled ice time soon. The public is welcome for a free skate at the arena on Sunday, January 29 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. This public skating timeslot will be in place for the remainder of the season.
