  • I spend a lot of time here with my wife. We enjoy Oshawa Generals hockey games, and we have been to a few concerts also. Always a great experience.
  • It's great but the announcer just changed... I miss the official voice of the generals :(
  • It'll be renamed to the "Tribute Communities Centre" in November... But it's a great place. It hosts good concerts, has a lot of seating, and is right near the downtown core of Oshawa.
  • Small town feel to it. There was absolutely no free parking around to quickly go in and buy tickets for an upcoming event. Staff were friendly. Can't wait to go see CrossFit :)
  • Great place to take in a hockey game or a local concert. Concession prices a little on the pricey side
