News and Announcements

As you may all know, the Pearkes Gold rink is 50 years old and requires extensive and expensive upgrades to keep it functional. Hockey Canada and other research shows that ice arenas have an average life expectancy of 30 to 35 years. Many municipalities raze rinks when they have reached this age.

Currently, the number of ice rinks in Saanich is far below what is provided by other municipalities in the area, and by what is needed by Saanich user groups. Saanich currently provides 2 rinks for a population of 114,000 which is a ratio of 1 ice surface per 57,000 people. In comparison, Esquimalt is 1 rink per 18,000; Oak Bay is 1 per 18,000 and Peninsula is 1 per 20,000 people. In order for Saanich to meet current demand and to be in line with other municipalities, we need a total of 5 rinks to bring the ratio down to 1 rink per 22,800 people.

PLEASE SIGN THE ATTACHED PETITION (click on the google forms link below), to ask that Saanich Council take immediate action to not only repair the aging ice rinks at Pearkes, but to also work towards constructing new ice rinks.
