The old Smallwood Arena
Built in 1977 the Smallwood Rink was a project of the Mount Pearl Minor Hockey Association. Constructed with a corrugated galvanized steel arch dome frame with metal siding - affectionately called by many, "The Tin Can". The 33,400 square foot arena included a standard ice/floor area, dressing rooms, canteen and two multi-purpose rooms. It operated under a volunteer Board of Management. The Smallwood Arena was host to many sporting activities, special events and recreational skates. It is located in the Smallwood RecPlex adjacent to the City's multi soccer complex (two national and one international standard) soccer fields and national standard baseball field. The Smallwood Arena is now closed.
The Glacier, built in 1993, is a three level multi-purpose complex and includes a 85' x 200' ice/floor surface, six dressing rooms, pro-shop, first aid room, referees room, board room, meeting room, snack shop, Crystal Ice viewing room, cafeteria with full kitchen service and standing room viewing, lounge with standing room viewing, twelve viewing booths, a 1,004 fixed seating gallery capacity and a concert capacity of 4000. Operated under a volunteer Board of Management, the Glacier is the proud host of many community events including: daily recreational skating; sports competitions such as figure skating, ice hockey and gymnastics; trade shows and exhibitions; and family, youth and adult special events and concerts. In 2012 the Glacier added a second ice surface.
