Forbes Innes Arena

Facility Information

The Forbes Innes Arena first opened its doors on October 1, 1977 through the dedication, passion and drive by hardworking volunteers of the Thorncliffe Greenview Communities. When the rink was first built, it was a renowned arena in the Calgary area (with even the Calgary Flames, Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota North Stars practicing here)!

The arena underwent a major renovation in 2010, and we are proud to host youth and adult hockey, figure skating, ringette and public skating.
