A fresh start.

The Town of Sylvan Lake is located in central Alberta, about 25 kilometres west of Red Deer. The Town is one of Alberta’s fastest growing communities, therefore has a need to maintain the growth of recreational facilities along with the growth of the community.

The new facility will be tied into the existing Sylvan Lake Multiplex, which has a hockey rink with seating capacity for over 1000, and aquatics centre. The roof of Sylvan Lake’s former arena collapsed in January 2014 after heavy snow accumulation, and the Town’s Curling Rink was condemned due to the age of the structure.

The replacement arena facility will be 85’ x 200’, twinned with the existing Multiplex that was completed in 2006 with some architectural and structural modifications. The arena replacement will be expanded upon to incorporate a multi-use aspect that will include a five-sheet curling rink, a walking/running track, seniors centre, meeting/banquet facilities, a commercial kitchen, and space for children and youth.

“HDR | CEI’s design charrette was not only extremely useful, but enjoyable. Getting all groups in agreement of the final concept might not have been possible without HDR | CEI’s design charrette.”
