Recreation and Leisure image

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!

Perry Roughnecks Proudly Sponsored by Marshall Well Drilling.  Thank you to Marshall Well Drilling and our Coaches, you make this possible!
