    All About Oakville's Sixteen Mile Sports Complex

    UPDATE: Congratulations to David Nolan who won the North Park naming contest!  The official name of the new rec centre is Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.  I also want to thank David for letting me know that he first heard of the contest from this website! 

     

    The Town of Oakville recently launched a contest to name the new arena currently under construction in North Oakville.  This arena is part of a 79 hectare sports park to be built on the west side of Neyagawa, North of Dundas Street.

    If you have driven past the area in the last few months there is no doubt you have seen all the construction taking place (it is impossible to miss).  North Park is going to be a phenomenal recreation spot which is expected to be completed in 3 phases.

    Phase 1 is expected to be finished by Fall 2010 and will include the following:

    • Quad pad arena including a 1,500 seat Olympic-sized ice surface and three NHL-sized ice pads
    • Four soccer fields
    • Cricket pitch
    • Leash-free dog zone
    • BMX/skateboard facility
    • Splash pad
    • Playground
    • Other park amenities

    Phase 2, scheduled to begin by 2015 will include:

    • A community centre
    • Library facility

    Phase 3, scheduled to begin in 2018, will include:

    • the development of the north parcel of land and will primarily focus on outdoor sports fields and passive areas
    It is now your opportunity to get involved and name the new arena!  Between now and January 15, 2010, the town is inviting you to participate in a naming contest.  See details below…
    The town invites you to help us name the new state-of-the-art quad pad arena on Neyagawa Boulevard, north of Dundas.

    Opening in September 2010, the facility will include a 1,500 seat Olympic-sized ice surface and three NHL-sized ice pads.

    Naming criteria:

    • Must be relevant to Oakville and its residents (e.g., historical, geographic), or
    • Must showcase the facility and its many uses, or
    • Must reflect the Town of Oakville’s vision to be the most livable town in Canada, or
    • Can recognize a person (deceased) or organization that has made a significant contribution to the town

    Submission deadline: Friday, January 15, 2010

    Your reward
    If your name is chosen, you will win a one-year family skate pass, an Oakville Blade’s season pass and an official VIP invite to the opening ceremonies on September 11, 2010. If the name chosen is submitted by multiple residents, then a draw will be held to determine the family to receive the reward.

    Disclaimer: The Town of Oakville reserves the right to name the facility from submitted names or from other sources. The name submission is only for the arena building, the park and future community centre will be named at a later date.
