The Bell Sensplex has established a new standard of excellence for recreation facilities in the Nation's Capital. The facility is the first public-private partnership of its kind and includes four ice-surfaces and an indoor field. The Canadian Tire, Palladium Insurance, Scotiabank and Mattamy Homes Arenas as well as the Argyle Associates Fieldhouse, have played host to thousands of participants since opening our doors. This incredible facility is designed by Edmunds Matthews Architects, an Ottawa based architectural and interior design firm, architects in association with the Morley Hoppner Group and the Ottawa Senators. The Bell Sensplex facility is indicative of their commitment to designing recreational complexes and in particular ice rinks that are versatile, dynamic, and exciting environments for communities.
