Sports Complex parking lot construction project

In the next couple of weeks the south parking lot at Nelson Sports Complex will undergo a complete renovation. This project is part of the total renovation project that included the ice area improvements last summer.


Parking during the project will be extremely limited with only the North lot being available. At times we will have hockey, fitness center, baseball and gymnastics activities all using the parking lot.  Extra parking will have to be on the street. We ask that our skating families are respectful to our ice arena neighbors. Parking rules for the street will still be monitored by the RM police.

When we know specific dates for the project we will post them on the rmskating website.
