  • Awesome place to take your kids to play hockey and other sports. Recently added aquatic facility to it. Took my boys there. Loved it. Recommended. 
  • Beautiful place for children to learn martial marts, skating, hockey and the newest addition, their swimming pool. A must see for whole family. 
  • WFCU centre did it again with its presentation of OVO from Cirque de Soliel. I strongly recommend seeing this show. The entertainers are incredible and the show is clever and funny. A great night out ...  more »

  • The company charged with managing this venue is not active in getting acts to it for the city as a whole. Parking (entry & exit) is insane design. Food costs are nothing short of rape. Good improved LED main bowl lighting. Friendly staff working events
  • Well set up. Multi use and knowledgeable staff at desk 99% of the time
  • Very good ice, better than the attched community rinks. Top notch building and community rink.
  • Parking is quite poor, with far too few exits onto the streets after an event. A solid venue for an OHL hockey game, even if the seats are packed in fairly closely. Good community rinks too.
  • bad location. no hotels nearby. closest restaurants are not walking distance. Who did the planning to have this area built here?
