UXBRIDGE ARENA AND RECREATION CENTRE
Pictured above is the Uxbridge Arena built in the early 1920's. It was located on Marietta Street, where the Seniors Centre is today. Following a hockey game in 1935 the building burned to the ground.
In this aerial view you can see the arena that replaced the one that burnt down. On the right side of the photo you can see the curling rink, which is still in use today. To the south of the arena was a large soccer/recreation field. The UxPool now sits to the south of the curling rink.
Pictured above is the present day arena (2021). The Uxbridge Arena and Recreation Centre was built in 1978. In 1997 a second ice pad was added. The facility in winter is home to a variety of hockey and skating clubs and programs. During the summer it is used for lacrosse and large events.
Over the years more recreation facilities have been added to the area surrounding the arena. The area now features the Uxbridge Lawn Bowling Club, The Bonner Boys Splash Pad, tennis courts and a baseball diamond.
