Read the latest press release from the City of Leduc:
AUGUST 24, 2021 – The City of Leduc’s Alexandra Arena has said goodbye to its reliance on hot water to create and resurface the ice rink to reduce cost, and will be running cold through a new REALice® water treatment system.In November 2020, Leduc City Council gave the green light for the new device at Alexandra Arena, which was installed in July 2021 and is ready to go for the upcoming season.
This update follows the Leduc Recreation Centre’s (LRC) REALice device installation in 2020, where the technology has been working successfully for the last year on all three ice surfaces.
“We continue to focus on improving our facilities, finding cost savings, and planning for an environmentally sustainable future,” said Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “This new technology contributes to all three of these priorities, and we’ve seen it working at the LRC, so converting the Alexandra Arena as well just made sense.”
