Welcome to the grand opening for the brand new, state-of-the-art Richcraft Sensplex on Shefford Road in Ottawa East
Ground broke on the facility in the spring of 2013, and we at Richcraft are so happy to have teamed up with Ottawa Community Ice Partnership to sponsor the four-pad ice surface complex. For the grand opening, we had guests including Cody Ceci and other NHL players, plus there were hot dogs, a BBQ and several activities for kids, along with a free skate.
Richcraft is the 3rd Sensplex in the city, after Bell, and Cavanaugh. It has four arenas, which includes an update to the pre-existing Potvin Arena, plus three brand new regulation NHL-sized arenas. Along with the beautiful new ice surfaces, there are heated seating areas and concessions available on the first floor, including Tim Horton’s coffee! Visitors can enjoy the soft seating lounge area complete with gas fireplace, the meeting room with advanced A/V equipment, and Lightning Blade Pro Shop providing full pro shop services. Upstairs, the fully licensed sports bar and fresh grill, Stanley’s Restaurant, overlooks 3 Arenas (HEO, Canadian Tire & Scotiabank).
This complex exemplifies our long-term commitment of giving back to the region by building skating facilities that will benefit all Ottawa residents and their families, but most importantly, our youth.
