Community rallies to save Macquarie Centre’s ice rink from demolition

Macquarie Centre’s Olympic-sized ice rink has been saved, with AMP Capital committing to keeping the rink regardless of any future development.

Members of the community have been campaigning to save the rink after plans were revealed to demolish it during the first stage of a partial re-development.

City of Ryde Mayor Jarome Laxale tells Ben Fordham it’s a win for people power.

“It’s been a real community effort.

“Thank you to over 50,000 people who signed the petition; thank you to those who turned up to the council meeting.

“And kudos to (AMP) for listening. A lot of companies are tone-deaf to the community.”
