MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw has decided to close the Pla-Mor Palace arena for the remainder of the 2020/2021 season.
The Pla-Mor Palace, which houses the Bert Hunt and Wally Boschuk ice rinks, has been temporarily closed since November 30, 2020 due to the additional COVID-19 Public Health measures and capacity restrictions.
On January 12, 2021, the province of Saskatchewan announced that the Public Health Orders would be extended for another two weeks. The Saskatchewan Hockey Association also received word that there would be no consideration of return to play (games) for at least four (4) weeks and that a return to game play is unlikely to happen before the end of March.
“After careful consideration and consultation with our major user groups, we have made the decision to close the Pla-Mor Palace for the rest of the winter season,” said Derek Blais, Director of Parks and Recreation. “With the extension of the Public Health measures, it was determined that the current demand for ice can be accommodated at the Kinsmen Arena and Mosaic Place.”
The City will continue to offer public skating opportunities at the Kinsmen Arena. To book skating or swimming at the Kinsmen Sportsplex, use the Online Recreation Registration link on the City’s website, www.MooseJaw.ca, or use the Recreation button on the free City of Moose Jaw app.
