Rink History

In 1998 another committee was formed to raise funds to renovate the rink and it became evident with girls playing hockey, travelling teams and junior "B" team play out of the rink. The annex was converted into 6 large dressing rooms, and a conference room. The upstairs at the front of the rink was made into a heated viewing area with a bar and kitchen facilities. The Zamboni donated by GreenBrier – Trenton was purchased in 1999 to replace the old tractor. The rink was renamed the Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre to recognize the original builders of the facility. A new board of lights were installed in 2009, and a new state of the art refrigeration plant was installed. The rink is now capable of having ice all year round.

In November 2012, it was announced that the Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre would receive $261,000 for a new concrete floor pad for the ice surface. This funding was made possible through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). Construction began in April 2013. Higgins Construction was awarded the tender for the project, which was completed in September 2013.
