Blackstock Arena near Port Perry to remain closed this season


Published November 2, 2021 at 10:02 am

Blackstock Arena – shuttered since the pandemic was declared in March 2020 – will remain closed this season due to a lack of demand for ice.

Scugog made the “difficult” decision to keep the rink closed at a Planning and Community Affairs Committee meeting last month, following a recommendation from staff.

The Township is hoping to build a new rink at the site – plans are for an arena three times the size of the current 80 year-old barn (which is famous for its ridiculously low ceilings) with seating for 300 – provided enough grant funding can be secured.
