The change rooms were under the ground and you would have to walk up stairs to get to the ice surface. There was enough room for about 30 spectators at one end of the ice.
There were quite a few of rinks like this around Grande Prairie Grovedale and Clairmont had them too but Leglace was by far the worst although it was an interesting rink to play in.
I also played at this one rink up in the Yukon when I lived there that was completely outside except for the change rooms which had a fireplace in them to keep them warm and the glass was a chain fence. It was very similar to an outdoor neighborhood rink but it was used for organized hockey.
I could have played here. Small world.
