South Burlington - C. Douglas Cairns Recreation Arena


The C. Douglas Cairns Recreation Arena is a twin rink facility conveniently located in South Burlington, Vermont. Both rinks are NHL size (85ft by 200ft) with four general use locker rooms per rink. Rink 1 has seating for 600 spectators. Cairns Café is located in Rink 1 and overlooks the ice surface.

Rink 2 has seating for approximately 400 spectators. The two rinks are connected by a corridor at this time but we hope to connect the two rinks with a centrally located lobby to include a lounge overlooking the rink.

The C. Douglas Cairns Arena offers a snack bar, food and beverage vending machines, arcade games and a Pro Shop that covers all the basics to get you on the ice.

Great arena with 2 rinks that are open year round......if they would just do locker assignments for hockey games!

Visited for a hockey tournament. Ice was in good shape. One locker room was kind of small. Bathrooms/showers attached to each room were nice. Only negative is you have to use a water fountain to fill water bottles because sinks in locker rooms are hot water only.
