About the Arena

Ted Reeve Community Arena (TRCA) is a City of Toronto arena, operated by a volunteer Board of Management. Ice bookings are done directly with the TRCA staff.

We offer ice times between 6 AM – 1 AM, seven days a week, from August to April and dry floor activities from May to July.

Our concession stand is enclosed; climate controlled and offers barbecued foods and refreshments.

Summer Season

Our Summer is short but begins in May and finishes at the end of July.

The smooth concrete floor is available for lacrosse, ball hockey, roller hockey and any other activity that needs a wide open area.

The arena is available for flea markets, concerts, sport shows and more.

History

In the very late 1940’s, a group of East End Toronto residents felt an indoor hockey arena was needed and set out to raise half of the money required, with the City of Toronto contributing the other half. Door to door fundraising took place and Ted Reeve, a Toronto Telegram sports writer, and a professional level athlete, wrote some articles to assist the effort to build the rink.

The doors opened October 1954. An arena built by the community, for the community and that is how it is still operated today, as Ted Reeve Community Arena.

Vision TR

Ted Reeve Community Arena Board Looks Ahead

The Ted Reeve Community Arena Board has established an Advisory Group for a visioning process to explore future opportunities for the 64 year-old Ted Reeve Arena, the adjacent fabric covered facility now under management, as well as overall site improvements.

Hearing from members of the community is central into this longer term planning process. To do so, the first Community Meetings to gather input have been scheduled, and all interested members of the community are invited to attend.

There will be two parallel events that will repeat the same content. Two time slots are being offered to maximize participation. Please only register for one event.
