Situated on 50 acres of parkland, the Iroquois Park Sports Centre (IPSC) is Canada's largest municipally owned and operated recreation facility. Inside, there are six (6) arenas, including a large stadium arena, two pools, a fully licensed restaurant and food court area, banquet and meeting rooms, a pro shop and elite athletic training facilities. Outside, there are 6 illuminated tennis courts, 3 illuminated tournament quality baseball diamonds, another two unlit ball diamonds and a fully lit tournament quality soccer pitch. The 250,000 square foot sports and entertainment facility was voted in the Top 5 "Best Arenas in the GTA" by Toronto Star. Advertisers and sponsors will gain visibility to crowds of sports enthusiasts throughout the year. Visit arenas for more information about Iroquois Park Sports Centre's amenities.

The majority of visitors are families with children aged 5 to 15 years.

- Sign Rotation: Your sign is rotated to a new rink every two months to provide exposure in all six rinks during the year.
- Premium Placement: You choose the best location for your message - home or visitor players' box, penalty box, by the goals or visible from the Lobby and Food Court through arena viewing windows.
