Ceremonial groundbreaking celebrates construction of region’s new event facility

The City of Lloydminster celebrated the region’s highly anticipated Cenovus Energy Hub with a ceremonial groundbreaking on Tuesday, August 29, 2023. This event marked a significant step forward in the realization of a dynamic multi-purpose facility that promises to transform the region’s recreational and economic landscape.

Construction on the $93.9-million event facility funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of Saskatchewan and the City of Lloydminster began in mid-2023. The facility is expected to be fully operational by winter 2025.

While the architectural details continue to take shape, the conceptual drawings reveal an impressive vision for the Cenovus Energy Hub:

  • A primary arena with seating for 2,500, expandable up to 4,500 with floor seats
  • A second full-size indoor ice surface with seating for 300-500
  • A third outdoor ice surface directly adjacent to the building

The site design extends well beyond the ice rinks, encompassing a comprehensive array of amenities to enrich the community experience. The long-term vision for Lloydminster’s Event District includes:

  • walking trails winding through lush greenery, providing opportunities for outdoor leisure.
  • 6 slo-pitch diamonds, catering to sports enthusiasts and fostering a vibrant athletic culture.
  • an outdoor park pavilion, fostering a sense of togetherness and providing a gathering space for various events.
  • over 35 powered camp stalls, catering to visitors eager to explore the city’s offerings and contribute to local tourism.
  • 6 commercial retail units, creating a hub of economic activity and cultivating entrepreneurial growth.
  • a hotel welcoming visitors and ensuring a seamless experience for event attendees.

The Cenovus Energy Hub is poised to boost economic development, diversify the region’s offerings, and attract athletes, artists, families and tourists. This project exemplifies the City’s commitment to progress and reflects the collective aspirations of a community eager to embrace a brighter, more vibrant future.
