Sixteen Mile Sports Complex
The new quad pad arena sports complex opened in Oakville, Ontario. Now Oakville has a world class arena with each rink viewable from the concourse.
The facility is almost 200,000 square feet big, features four seperate ice pads and two 20x40 foot shooter pads. The facility celebrated its grand opening September 2010 in time for the fall hockey season.
Contained in the complex is a 1,500 seat Olympic style ice surface along with three NHL sized ice pads, two shooter pads and of course concessions and a restaurant.
The new home for the Blades feels like the pros with official looking scoreboard that hangs down from the middle of the full sized stadium seating.
Grand Opening was September 18-19, 2010 and featured speed skating demonstrations, Oakville Hornets Girls Hockey, MOHA scheduled Ice times, facility tours, Oakville Skating Club activities, Public skating and the Oakville Blades Home Opener Game.
This sixteen mile sports complex is part of a greater plan in Oakville to completely develop the 80 hectare North Park sports park which includes a couple of lit soccer fields, cricket pitch, BMX and skateboard facility and aquatic facility, library, community centre and playground with splash pad. No bowling alley this time, but everything else seems to be there and many are enjoying the new state of the art facility in Oakville, Ontario. There is even an off-leash area for the dogs in back.

Quad Ice Pads Grand Opening
Oakville has always been short on ice surfaces with some aging arenas and not nearly enough facilities to accommodate the demand. This new Quad Ice Pad even accommodates sledge hockey and provides a professional backdrop to hockey enthusiasts all across the region.
The Sixteen Mile Sports Complex opened September 2010.
