Local Attractions

Rogers Place

Recreation
5 minutes away
Spectacular, iconic and inspiring are just some of the words being used to describe the new home of the Edmonton Oilers. The vision of Rogers Place was born when Daryl Katz purchased the Oilers in 2008. At the time he stated a desire to not only find the Oilers a new home in downtown Edmonton, but to do it in a style that would transform our City and encourage further downtown development. Through his partnership with the City of Edmonton, that vision has already been realized, and now continues to expand. Rogers Place is an arena built for fans. Among its many significant features are a lower bowl of over 9,000 seats, terrific sightlines, wide concourses, leading food and beverage offerings and the latest in technology. Whether attending an Oilers game or the biggest of concerts, guests of Rogers Place will experience it all in the most dynamic of entertainment environments.
