Mobi-Mat

The Mobi-Mat is a universally accessible means of getting down to the water. In partnership with the Georgina Accessibility Advisory Committee (GAAC) the Town was able to secure funding for this through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.  The Mobi-Mat will be reinstalled in Spring 2018.

Pefferlaw Ice Pad Roof

Thanks to funding support from the Federal Government - Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, the Pefferlaw Ice Pad has a new ‘ROOF’.  

Construction Update - May 2018

The PIP Roof Project was implemented to provide the existing facility with protection from snow and rain events and sun glare, thus reducing maintenance during the ice-making season, potentially extending the winter season for ice users, and providing relief from summer sun and rain showers.  
 
The PIP Roof project includes:
  • Upgraded lighting has been installed to improve visibility on the rink surface and under the picnic shelter area  
  • Perimeter architectural lighting is in place for access to and from the facility  
  • All of the lighting is controlled by simple, push-button controller and timers
  • The picnic shelter area has been expanded for events such as the PAR Picnic, and includes improved lighting and electrical receptacles to address basic electrical power needs 
  • Improved maintenance access, including new concrete ramps at the mechanical building (for ice resurfacer) and south double doors (for added service access) are in place
  • Asphalt aprons will be completed once the plants open this Spring
  • New benches are to be installed for players/skaters
