Forbes Innes Arena

Facility Information

Due to the Dec. 8th restrictions announced by the provincial government, the Forbes Innes Arena is closed after Saturday, Dec. 12 until further notice. No further bookings can be taken at this time. 

We’d like to thank our valued arena clients and program participants for their patience at this unusual time, and we look forward to seeing you again as soon as possible. 

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.
