Dewars Centre


(Dewars Ice Rink)

Located on Glover Street in W Central Perth, the Dewars Centre is an ice rink and indoor bowling arena which lies next to the Perth Leisure Pool, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northwest of Perth Railway Station. Opened in 1990, it replaced a former ice rink at Muirton, which was redeveloped into a retail park along with the adjacent former football stadium.

Best known for curling, said to be the best ice in Scotland, the Dewars Centre regularly holds national and international competitions within its eight-rink hall. The eight-lane indoor lawn bowling arena also attracts major competitions. The ice rink is also available for public skating, ice hockey and provides a training facility for the Perth Figure Skating Club.

The centre can also provide facilities for conferences, exhibitions and other events, with two 1300-seater halls, two suites with capacities of 100 and 250, together with smaller meeting rooms. There is parking for 300 cars underneath the centre.

The centre is operated by Perth Ice Rink (1988) Ltd., in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council.
