The Town of Newmarket has developed this facility as part of a larger development surrounding the historic Fernbank Farm site. The recreation facility, with its stone walls and folded metal roof, is nestled in a field of tall grasses - a modern vestige of the agricultural history of the site. The landscaping of the site is connected to local trails; rainwater feeds a naturalized storm water management pond immediately west of the site.The building has four ice surfaces, an 8-lane 25-metre recreational/competition pool with viewing gallery, gymnasium and multi-purpose rooms.A key feature of the facility is the viewing gallery/lounge that overlooks all of the ice rinks. This area is as much for spectators as it is for active participants in sport. Generous glazing provides controlled views and natural light to and from the building and its surrounding landscape.
