Renovations to the Emsdale Rink Expansion Project are supported by the Government of Canada through the Community Infrastructure Program.  The Township of Perry has built a small expansion to the Emsdale rink to provide public washrooms, change room and utility room, making it accessible for all to enjoy.  This will provide a warming area with benches for users to sit and put on their skates.  Please come and enjoy the Facility!
