Description: 40 Stavebank Road . Plan 300E, Lot 10 to Lot 12. Port Credit Memorial Arena, completed in 1959, is the oldest surviving and first public arena in Mississauga. Within the city, it is also the earliest surviving example of a barrel vaulted arena and a rare example of public 1950s Contempo architecture. It has direct associations with both the Town and the community of Port Credit, as well as the veterans that it memorializes. Port Credit Memorial Arena demonstrates the work of Robert C. Fairfield, a significant Canadian architect. The arena is important in supporting the recreational character of Port Credit Memorial Park and the commemorative character of the area, which includes the Port Credit Cenotaph, 29 Stavebank Road. The arena is physically and visually linked to its surroundings. Finally, it is a highly visible landmark overlooking Port Credit Memorial Park and the Credit River. The Arena is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act.
