Long Description:
The text from the CSRS database indicated that the marker should be found:
"MIDLAND ARENA GARDENS, 91.4 M SOUTHWEST OF KING STREET, AT NORTHWEST SIDE OF ROAD TO LITTLE LAKE PARK, TABLET IN NORTH FACE OF BUTTRESS AT NORTHEAST CORNER OF BUILDING, 34 CM WEST OF NORTHEAST CORNER AND 27 CM ABOVE GROUND LEVEL."

The pictures demonstrate the problem with locating this one. When the marker was placed there was only one arena and the N face was an exterior face. When the new arena complex, the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre was built, the old arena was retained but completely enclosed by the new complex. The top picture is of the front at the NE corner of the Complex. None of the old Midland Arena Gardens wall now exists. This new wall would enclose the old one.



This picture of the rear of the building shows the old arena portion, the yellow walls, and how it has been completely joined to the new building (N is on the left). The wall (north) that should hold the plaque is now either completely covered or has been torn down.
