Located on the UPEI campus, adjacent to the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre, the Bell Aliant Centre and the MacLauchlan Arena were built to facilitate the residents of Charlottetown, Stratford and the surrounding area and is fully accessible to the public as well as to the University’s population. The aquatics facility houses an eight-lane, 82 feet (25 metre) competition swimming pool, a leisure pool with waterslide, a toddler’s pool and a whirlpool. The MacLauchlan Arena, which officially opened in 2003, houses two NHL-sized ice surfaces and is named after well-known Island businessman, Harry MacLauchlan.
