The facility was originally built in 1972 as a 1,800 seat arena and in 1999 undergone renovations which expanded beyond the arena.
The arena was home to the Markham Waxers junior team in the OPJHL, and also occasionally hosted the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey League in the mid 1970s. Beginning in 2015 the arena became home ice for the Markham Royals, which succeeds the Waxers at the city's OPJHL team.
The ice rink surface is NHL regulation size with seating around most of the rink.
The expansion in 1999 added additional facilities:
- bocce / squash courts / basketball practice rooms
- Program Room
- Pool Training Room
- Meeting rooms
- indoor swimming pool - lap pool and children's pool
Outdoor skate park is located to the west of the community centre across from the ice rink along with two baseball fields (with concrete seating behind home plate) and a soccer pitch (with seating on one side).
