The Cambridge Sports Park was designed and built as an arena and opened in 1997. The facility houses two ice surfaces, four Slo-pitch diamonds, four outdoor beach volleyball courts, a full service bar/restaurant, complete with an outdoor fully licensed patio, a concessions kiosk, and party room. In March 2011, Buckingham Sports Inc purchased the Cambridge Ice Park, along with the London Ice Park facilities, which opened in 1996 and 1993 respectively, out of receivership. Buckingham re-branded the Cambridge and London facilities the Sports Park, beginning a new era of recreational activities for all ages. The Cambridge Sports Park is located on land leased from the City of Cambridge. Located in the three principal urban centres of Southwestern Ontario, the facilities "feed-off" of each other, enhancing operating performance. In all locations, the Sports Parks are the only privately operated recreational facilities in their respective markets.
