Grightmire Arena is the home of the Dundas Blues Minor Hockey Association as well as the 2014 Allan Cup winning Dundas Real McCoys Senior AAA ice hockey team. Originally constructed in 1950, this historic arena is tucked into a residential neighborhood on the edge of downtown Dundas on Market Street and is a hub of activity year round.
This addition & renovation project included a 20,000ft2, 2 storey addition with a new, inviting main entrance, a spacious main lobby, concession area, administration offices, 6 new lower-level dressing rooms, washrooms, elevator, walking track, extensive site work and second floor 7,300 ft2 multiuse Community Room that offers a spectacular view of the ice surface below. The resulting enhancements to the overall spectator & user experience has led to gushing reviews from the community as a whole.
