Indoor Skating At Woodgrove Mall

Ice Dance Competitors Perform At Woodgrove Mall

On February 10, Vancouver Island’s largest shopping centre, Woodgrove Centre in Nanaimo will open the doors to a new indoor skating rink. From February 10 until April 1, 2018, guests can enjoy the unique experience of skating on synthetic ice. All proceeds will go to the Nanaimo Child Development Centre (NCDC), which has a 50-year history of empowering children in the community with special needs.

“This partnership with Woodgrove Centre on their new rink fits in so well with everything we promote here at the Centre – staying active, spending time with family and friends and having fun,” said Scott Bradford, Executive Director, Nanaimo Child Development Centre. “Woodgrove has supported the Nanaimo Child Development Centre since 1981, raising more than $500,000 in donations.”

Opening weekend celebrations on February 10 and 11 will feature performances by B.C. Ice Dance competitors Sarah Arnold and Thomas Williams. A 6’ faux-ice maple leaf next to the rink will provide patrons with an ideal spot to take selfies to show their support for Canadian athletes at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Free Blenz hot chocolate for everyone while quantities last and red Hudson’s Bay mittens for the first 50 skaters will round out the all-Canadian experience. Public skating will begin after the Ice Dance performances on opening weekend.

Joining in the festivities, The Nanaimo Clippers will lace up on Family Day, Monday, February 12 from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. for skating and an autograph session.
