A’nowara’ko:wa Arena Facility & Grounds Development Updates

The A’nowara’ko:wa Arena is scheduled to open on Monday, April 16, 2018 for the spring and summer season. The arena will be available to serve athletes and community members through lacrosse games, practices, and tournaments, in-line rock & skate, Pickle Ball, the Tewa’a:ra’ton Festival, Energy fair, Country Fest Fair, Akwesasne International Powwow, and community activities and meetings, to name just a sample of what’s scheduled this spring and summer.

The arena staff greatly appreciates the work Tehotiiennawakon staff has done to confirm Canada 150 funding, and an Ontario legal gaming and ADEF grant, which has assisted us financially in the purchase of a new scoreboard, road side sign, historical markers, a new concession stand, two new chillers, and a bike path which construction will begin for this summer. Also the MCA Community Health Program is renovating a room into a fitness room for the community. Thank you all for your contributions to our community arena.

The arena now has video surveillance inside and outside of the facility, for the safety and security of the facility and the community.

The arena needs all clients and guests to move cautiously around facility and grounds, due to renovation and construction that will continue throughout the spring & summer season. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you back to our arena.

Appreciation to MCA departments, especially DTS & Finance for their assistance in making sure the Canada 150 project gets completed and goes smoothly. Thank you.
