Re-purposing Rexall Place

Edmonton is getting a new arena, that is something well known. What isn’t well known, well, it isn’t even known at this point in time, what should be done with the old arena?

An excellent idea was mentioned to me by my friend David. David suggests that as Northlands is an agricultural group, they really should look at urban farming.


Now what is proposed in that video wouldn’t exactly work in Rexall place, but there could be something argricultural, something green that could be done with Rexall.
Or, of course, the city and Northlands could go in a completely different direction. Northlands already has an expo centre, and a horse racing track, and as we know all concerts, sporting events and even monster truck racing are going to take place in the new downtown arena. 

Suggested so far has been: giant ball pit and the top suggestion, swimming pool for cats. Surely we can do better than that can’t we?

I probably laughed a little too hard at that.

Oh I laughed pretty hard at that too when I first hear it. Apparently it caused a great deal of discussion at the Northland’s office. I just knew I had to share that with everyone!

About Oil Patch

Lisa McRitchie is a fairly new writer, online at least, but makes up for inexperience with passion for the game of hockey and memories of Mrs. Leskiw’s English AP class; who knew they would pay off one day.

Oil Patch focuses on the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oil Kings, The Oklahoma City Barons and Team Canada Hockey with game coverage, news updates, speculation and interviews.

Although the Oilers have had a difficult past decade… or three, here at Oil Patch, the future looks bright.
