Update On the Future of Brandon's Community Sportsplex

September 25, 2023

BRANDON, MB — The City of Brandon is pleased to provide an update on the future of Brandon’s Community Sportsplex Arena, as well as provide a pool update! 

Earlier this year, we asked our community to weigh in on the future of our community sportsplex. The Sportsplex means so much to our community — it gives us a chance to have fun while staying healthy — whether that’s on the ice, on the court or in the water. 

By meaningfully consulting and listening to you and your neighbours, and carefully studying the information and recommendations of the Recreation Needs Assessment & Conceptual Design for Brandon’s Community Sportsplex Arena, we’ve heard from our community that they are very supportive of renovating the Ice Rink to retain the indoor ice surface.  

At the last Council meeting on September 18, Brandon City Council approved a request to release the proposal for the detailed design of a new Sportsplex ice plant and arena upgrades. This allows for the next step in the process to take place, which includes the engineering services for the new ice plant to be secured, and the design of the new ice plant and associated upgrades to begin this fall.  We expect construction of the ice arena to take place in 2024, with the rejuvenated arena up and running by late 2024. 


In Other News...the Pool Is Open Again!  

The pool gets closed once every two years for a three-week period to ensure proper maintenance. We closed the pool for this regularly scheduled maintenance on September 3, and we’re pleased to announce that maintenance was successfully completed, and the pool reopened as scheduled on September 23!
