The Mariners Centre is a multi-purpose sport, recreation, and event facility in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. This is an exciting time for the Mariners Centre. In October 2022, the Mariners Centre confirmed funding for a historic $30M expansion plan that, when complete, will establish the centre as a vibrant regional hub - adding Aquatics, Fitness, and Multi-Purpose Spaces to the existing facility's two ice rinks and event hosting spaces. A community-wide fundraising campaign has been planned to help ensure the facility is fully equipped and meets our needs for generations to come.
