About the project

The City of London is working to revitalize Silverwoods Park and make upgrades to the existing indoor space at the arena. This will ensure local residents and existing user-groups from other nearby communities have a welcoming space with updated sport and recreation amenities.

The ice at Silverwoods Arena was removed in 2019 following the opening of Bostwick Arena. Since that time, the cement dry pad rink has been continually used for various sport activities and events. This indoor space has become a vital recreation asset and an upgrade to the building is now required.

The scope of this project will focus on the following over the next three years:


  1. re-development of the park block
  2. pool life-cycle renewal improvements
  3. updates to the arena to create a community centre

The park re-development

The improvements to the park will:

  • replace aged park infrastructure such as pathways and playground
  • replace existing wading pool or install a spray pad (depending on neighbourhood input)
  • improve accessibility
  • re-design, expand, or re-locate the parking lot

New park amenities will also be discussed with residents and feedback will be collected.


The facility work

Silverwoods Pool and Arena will also be updated with several improvements.

The work to Silverwoods Pool will:

  • fill in the diving well
  • upgrade the filter room
  • install concrete stairs with railings
  • upgrade the fieldhouse washroom

The work to Silverwoods Arena/Community Centre will:

  • upgrade the building’s heating and cooling
  • improve accessibility
  • replace the roof

Public meeting

City staff are in the beginning stages of the project and will now be engaging with residents in the neighbourhood regarding the park re-development.

The first in-person, drop-in public meeting happened on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Crouch Branch Library, located at 550 Hamilton Road. This facility is wheelchair accessible.

The second public meeting will be on September 18, 2024, and more details will be coming soon.
