St. Catharines City Council approved a new arena strategy and things are not looking good for the Garden City Complex.

City staff want to re-purpose or declare the property surplus, once a new facility is built to take it's place.

The Canada Games Sport and Activity Centre will have a twin-pad arena and a spectator rink.

City Council approved up to $10 million for the Canada Games Infrastructure Project back in May. That funding is conditional, based on contributions from other partners and the development of an operating agreement and model.
