The Ron Gorr Memorial Arena features skating ice that is perfect for recreational skating, figure skating or younger hockey teams. Our ice surface measures 165’ X 75’. It does not meet the regulations for hit hockey.
We offer public skating and drop-in fun hockey along with private ice rentals from mid-October to March each year. Watch for public skating times posted on our calendar and Facebook page.
The ice surface is available for rent throughout the season for practises, games or private parties. Two local fun hockey teams play out of our facility. We have availability for outside teams for practise or games.
Once the ice comes out, the skating rink surface becomes a great place to host large functions, trade shows or even sporting events.
This area is available April to September each year.
Our facility houses a 2-sheet curling rink with ice available from November to March each year.
The upstairs lounge area provides the ideal place to watch curling or enjoy a cold beverage after a game.
The Torrington Curling Club utilizes the space for their open league curling twice a week as well as bonspiels during the year.
Private rentals are also available. Click here to see rental rates.
The concession is located on the main floor of the facility and has access to both the arena and curling rink lobbies.
This concession space boasts a commercial grill, deep fryer, coffee maker, cooler and freezer.
Each year a contract is awarded to a concession operator to serve food and beverages during events held within the Ron Gorr Memorial Arena such as bonspiels and tournaments as well as larger trade shows.
The concession is regularly inspected by Alberta Health Services for compliance with safe food handling practises.
The banquet hall is the perfect location to host community events, weddings, reunions and other private functions. This space seats approximately 240 people at round tables, which we provide along with chairs. We are excited to announce that our banquet hall and kitchen have recently undergone a renovation thanks to Kneehill County and the Government of Alberta Community Facility Enhancement Program.

Just off the banquet hall we have a commercial kitchen that features 3 stoves, large cooler, ice maker and commercial dishwasher. This space is ideal for food preparations for large functions in our banquet hall. While the space is typically rented alongside the banquet hall, it can also be rented on its own.
Our kitchen is regularly inspected by Alberta Health Services for compliance with safe food handling practises.
For those looking for a place to camp while renting any of the spaces in our facility there are campsites at the Torrington Campground, operated by Kneehill County, located adjacent to the arena or on-site in the green space surrounding the arena.
