This is the new building that replaced the skating rink that was torn down
These two photos (taken from NW corner) are during the initial stages before turf goes down.
These photos show the EAST end of the new building. This is the new mezzanine over the former skating rental room, DJ room, storage garage and concession area. They kept the locations of the skating bathrooms on the left. They open right onto the field (SEE 2nd SET OF PHOTOS BELOW) .
This is the view of the mezzanine, one of the stairs to get to the mezzanine and of the field from the mezzanine
These are the bathrooms in the NEW building. They open right onto the field at the NE corner of the new field.. There isn't much change from what was there before except paint and some new fixtures.
This is the view from the NE corner looking directly SOUTH and WEST alomg the North wall from below the mezzanine.
This is the view from the SE corner looking directly WEST and NW along the SOUTH wall from below the mezzanine
This is the view from the SW corner looking EAST. This is the location of the old entrance to the skating rink. For some reason (Building Codes?), they had to keep the brick wall from the entrance to the skating rink and they placed something called a "TEAM ROOM" in it. It has lovely south facing glass walls and an open area located as far away from the rest of the building as you can get. Personally, I can see no real use for this area.
These are photos of various openings in the net around the new field. The net goes all the way to the floor all around the field and due to building codes (and common sense), there must be access to the exterior doors and equipment panels. This somewhat strange development is apparently due to the change in building usage For those of you who didn't follow this, thhis NEW building was originally supposed to be the basket ball building. At some point, someone discovered the could get ONE (1) extra basketball court (a total of FOUR (4) courts) into the former NORTH soccer field area by tearing things out as far as possible and a decision was made to adjust the plan. At some point, they discovered that the interior panels in the NEW building were NOT dent resistant to things like lacrosse balls and the net had to go to the floor.
