Brampton is getting its very first covered outdoor skating rink this year as part of the final phase of the Gore Meadows Rec Centre expansions.

The new skating rink is part of 80,000 square feet of new space being added to the centre.

15,500 square feet will be dedicated to a covered outdoor rink and pavilion, which is the first of its kind in Brampton.

The expansion is set to be completed in March, adding a fourth outdoor skating option to the city along with Gage Park and the new Chinguacousy Park skating trail.

The project will also include a giant 8-lane lap pool, a fitness centre, dance studios and an indoor track. Find more details here.

Gore Meadows Rec Centre is located at 10150 The Gore Rd.
