Thorold Community Arenas

Roller Skating

The James Whyte Arena is located at 70 Ormond Street North in the downtown Thorold business district and is connected internally to the Frank Doherty Arena, which has been recently upgraded and will remain in full operation.

The City is currently working on a long-term strategy to repurpose the property on which the James Whyte Arena is situated and expect to implement this plan in 2027. This presents an opportunity to establish an interim use for the existing building and parking space for passive and organized recreational purposes.

The City of Thorold is issuing a Call For “Expressions of Interest” (EOI) to any private or public user groups wishing to rent or lease some or all the available space for the purposes of providing recreational, cultural, or special interest programming aimed at enhancing the health, lifestyle and quality of life for Thorold residents of all ages.

Please click on the buttons below to review the “Expressions of Interest” (EOI) Background and complete the fillable PDF which needs to be emailed to by Monday, May 13, 2024, at 3:00 p.m.
