W.C. O'Neill Arena Complex

The W.C. O'Neill Arena Complex is a multipurpose facility located in the heart of the historic community of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea.  The facility has been the centre of community activity and a focal point of Saint Andrews and its citizens since it was built in 1963.  The facility is home to ice surfaces to house both skating and curling activities.  Numerous community groups use the surface for competitive and recreational leagues, figure skating and more recently speed skating.


The facility promotes a sense of community in Saint Andrews by offering a wide variety of activities to its citizens, allowing the community to grow together.  The W.C. O'Neill arena complex is also home to a movie theatre, meeting and convention facilities, St. Andrews Community Channel, dormitories and a curling club.

New Complex Policy

The Arena Board has adopted a new policy for booking and reserving weekends for events.  The new policy is that a $500.00 deposit accompanies your request to reserve the weekend of your event.  The deposit will be refunded if the event is cancelled one month in advance.  If the event goes as scheduled the $500.00 deposit will be deducted from the event invoice. **All cheques made payable to The Town of St. Andrews**
